Applix & RH7.0

I'm having some trouble getting Applix 4.3.7 to run with my version of RH7.0. It seemed to install just fine- using the installer program on the Applix disk. But when I try to run it this error message occurs: /usr/bin/ldd: /opt/applix: no such file or director
Please install the applix-libs package; applix may not work with your current C library
We will try to run Applix anyway: press control -c to abort
/bin/applix: /opt/applix/applix: No such file or directory
/bin/applix: /opt/applix/applix: No such file or directory

I've try installing the C libs that came with the applix disk and that did not make any difference. I'd like to get some sort of word processing program going on this old pentium- my version of Abbi word developed a strange case of black vertical lines that go between each letter when I type- works fine otherwise but it is a distraction. Thanks for any suggestions or help.

why are you using redhat 7.0? the newer versions of redhat really shouldnt take too much more to run at all and then gcc glibc and other important packages will be more up to date, in fact im pretty sure thats whats happening here is that this release of applix is only supposed to be compiled with a newer version of gcc try upgrading your distribution to redhat 8.0 or really, better yet fedora core 1 which is pretty much redhat with a name change this will stop you from having a nearly perpetual headache resultant of using a much too old distribution, redhat 7.0 is at least a year old, probably much more than that
