Matlab 7, problems with and GLIBC_2.0


i have an issue with Matlab7 on my Fedora 7.
I have installed the program and averything is fine.
EXCEPt for one big detail

I can get the 'syms' toolbox to work
I actually get this message

'Unable to load mex file: /usr/share/matlab7/toolbox/symbolic/maplemex.mexglx.
/usr/share/matlab7/bin/glnx86/ symbol errno, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file with link time reference
??? Invalid MEX-file '/usr/share/matlab7/toolbox/symbolic/maplemex.mexglx': .

Error in ==> maple at 104
[result,status] = maplemex(statement);

Error in ==> sym.sym at 105

Error in ==> syms at 68
assignin('caller',x,sym(x,'real')); ''

When i googled it i found many people having the same problem. What i understood was that, the problem is with the new
The new versions of GLIb are having compatibility problems with the specific GLIBC2.0
Some people get a similar error msg , when having errors with java but that is not my case , because all the java environment tools work just fine.

The official site of Mathworks suggests to put an olde version of the glibc in the matlab directory.

My quastion is: if i try this , i must remove the current version of GLib (which i think is not very wise...), or can i just put the old libraries where are needed. And how do i just get the libraries without installing the hole package.

I have dowbnloaded an older version of glib but it doesnt let me install it.
