Sim City 3000


I installed Sim City 3000 but when I try to run with:

[root@ud3-25 sc3u_demo]# ./sc3u_demo
./sc3u_demo: relocation error: ./sc3u_demo: symbol _dl_global_scope, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file ld-linux.so.2 with link time reference


Now I'm trying to install the patch sh sc3u-2.0a-x86.run
but appear me

=============================================================
Would you like to apply this update? [Y/n]: y

Please enter the installation path: []: /usr/local/games/SimCity/sc3u

=============================================================
Performing update:
Computing MD5 sums for new uninstaller, this may take a while...
cp: no se puede efectuar `stat' sobre `/usr/local/games/SimCity/sc3u': No existe el fichero o el directorio
ERROR: Can't find /usr/local/games/SimCity/sc3u.dynamic
The program returned an error code (3)


What can I do?

Thanks

Patch is no use.....
get segmentation fault after the update too
I assume the problem is you are applying the patch for the full version
to the demo.
The problem, I assume is the same as the loki_patch problem
(i.e. it needs glibc less than 2.3)
but there is an update for the loki_patch that makes it work
cos it's open source but sc3u ain't
If you come up with a solution please post it here!

I don't know if this solves the demo-version problem, but I found this solution for the full version on another site.

1) First run the simcity patch
2) When you run the application, try this:

LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 /usr/local/bin/sc3u

I personally just changed my /usr/local/bin/sc3u so that instead of being a link to the /usr/local/games/SC3U/sc3u, it was a script that called the file with the line above. But whatever suites your needs.

I saw some people saying that you have to assume 2.2.4 (it didn't work for me), so if the 2.2.5 doesn't work, give that a try too.

Thank you

Tried the fix and it works like a charm on Mandrake 10.1, kernel 2.6.8. I never would have figured that out for myselff.

Q: What is this error I'm getting now about a trap or Updatetrap?

A: Run the setup with /bin/bash setupname.bin or setupname.run instead of /bin/sh

Update passed, thanks. Run the game using:
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.26 /usr/local/bin/sc3u

2.4.26 works well, but 2.2.4 or 2.2.5 doesn't.
