6.2i Install - Red Hat Linux 9.0 CD install reports GLIBC_2.0 error unless LD_ASSUME_KERNEL is set to 2.4.7

Description

Keywords: relocation, libwinsock44, libc.so.6, GLIBC, h_errno

When I try to install 6.2i design tools on my Red Hat Linux 9.0 system, the following errors occur:

"/mnt/cdrom/xilxinfo: relocation error:
/mnt/cdrom/bin/lin/libwinsock44.so: symbol h_errno, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference"

Solution

On Red Hat Linux 9.0, you must set the environment variable LD_ASSUME_KERNEL to 2.4.7 before running the setup program, as shown in the following examples:

in csh/tcsh, use 'setenv LD_ASSUME_KERNEL 2.4.7'
in sh/ksh, use 'export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.7'
