running 2 versions of glibc ? ? need help

Hello guys after a lots of hunting around I have found lots of reasons for the Signal: 6 (Unknown Signal) Segmentation fault on SuSE systems but after fixing the color settings and adding missing paths the error still remaied and I found that it is due to the glibc so I tried to copy form a red hat 7.2 system which is certified to work for maya 5.0 into /usr/aw/maya5.0/lib and now I'm getting a different error

do@strong:~> maya
sed: /usr/aw/maya5.0/lib/ version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by sed)
sed: /lib/ version `GLIBC_2.1.1' not found (required by /usr/aw/maya5.0/lib/
sed: /lib/ version `GLIBC_2.2.3' not found (required by /usr/aw/maya5.0/lib/
sed: /lib/ version `GLIBC_2.2' not found (required by /usr/aw/maya5.0/lib/

My guess is that I have missed a few tings. Any hints would be grealy apreciated.

Its not a good idea to keep 2 versions of glibc. Almost every program is linked with this lib, and they will not work properly ...

Sed, for example, need's an version 2.3, and the glib from Red Hat is 2.2.4 AFAIK. To check what lib are used by a binary, use ldd file, this will detect if the correct lib is being loaded. Run ldconfig to configure your libs ...
