i'd be stupidly careful about doing this. the rest of the system will be compiled (presuambly) against 2.2, and you may well find that nothing will work at all....

I'd personally (if possible) do a downgrade of distro. Find the newest version of your favorite distro that contains the version of glibc necessary for your things to work properly. That'd be the easiest thing for you to do IMO.

Cool

How about dumping old glibc and sybase in a chrooted area?
That way you dont have to pollute the main system.

unSpawn's seems easiest at this point then. Look at a program called jail:

It will take a bit of configuring, but would be the safest, and probably even the easiest solution to deploy.

Cool
