why wont this file and another one execute?

here is the relivent information:

[justin@bingo rdp]$ ls
RDPclient.default rdp.default templates winbox xRDP
[justin@bingo rdp]$ ./xRDP
bash: ./xRDP: No such file or directory
[justin@bingo rdp]$ ldd xRDP
/usr/bin/ldd: ./xRDP: No such file or directory
[justin@bingo rdp]$ nm xRDP
nm: xRDP: no symbols
[justin@bingo rdp]$ file xRDP
xRDP: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
[justin@bingo rdp]$ ls -l xRDP
-rwxr-xr-x 1 justin justin 74860 Jun 5 15:01 xRDP

any ideas what it could be? why wont it execute?


Upon further investigation (i ran it on another machine with diff distribution) it says:

./xRDP: error in loading shared libraries: cannont open shared object file: No such file or directory. doesnt exist in my /lib directory only which is linked to, so i tried to make a link like so:

and then ran ./xRDP again but it came up with:

ln -s error in loading shared libraries: ./xRDP: Undefined symbol: __libc_init

so that means that is not backwardly compatable with what do i need in order for this to work now?

well, I think there's no escape: it's an old libc5 binary and you're running a glibc2 system. I'm not an expert in these issues, but had the same problem with maxwell binaries: it runs well in a RH 5.2 system (libc5) and returns the same message you got in my Slackware 8 (glibc2).

I tried to copy old libs to the binary directory, run ldconfig and could make it work... Try to get the sources and compile them...
