Trouble installing xview-3.2p1.4 on RedHat 9


I have just installed xview-3.2p1.4.bin.tar.gz from
http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/X/xview
However, when I try to run say cmdtool or textedit I get errors

/usr/openwin/bin
[root@mmme1 bin]# ./cmdtool
bash: ./cmdtool: /lib/ld-linux.so.1: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory
[root@mmme1 bin]#

It seems that /lib/ld-linux.so.1 does not exist, which is confirmed by:
[root@mmme1 lib]# pwd
/lib
[root@mmme1 lib]# ls ld-*
ld-2.3.2.so ld-linux.so.2 ld-lsb.so.1
[root@mmme1 lib]#

I would be very grateful if you would help me.

Many thanks,
Chris

You might try making /lib/ld-linux.so.1 a symbolic link to /lib/ld.2.3.2.so

Dear Steve,
I tried your suggestion, but I am getting an error due to another missing library now:

" error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.5"

Try the same solution. Find a file in /lib that is libc and symbolically link libc.co.5 to it. My libc is called /lib/libc.so.6

You should be OK as long as your libc version is later than version 5.

[I have followed Steve's suggestion, but have now got other errors.

root@mmme1 bin]# ./cmdtool
./cmdtool
./cmdtool: relocation error: ./cmdtool: undefined symbol: __libc_init

I also found xview as a RH8 package:
http://www.physionet.org/physiotools....4-16.i386.rpm

It seemed to install, but then generated the same errors. I also tried to install the rpm source files, but that did not seem to work.

Xview seems quite illusive, but I really could do with it because I have a load of 'legacy' software I wrote 8-9 years ago which uses xview.

Thanks again,
Chris

The error: undefined symbol: __libc_init
may mean that libc.so.5 is not symbolicly linked to the real libc. Try linking libc.so.5 to libc-2.3.2.so instead.
