[SLE] Re: Solutions for Install issues on SUSE, Caldera



Thanks for the quick response, Gavriel!

I don't know what "Distros without run-parts" means. I don't know if
SuSE has 'run-parts' or not.

SuSE's glibc is version 2.1.1, not 2.1.3, so I would guess that the
sections about can be ignored. ???

I've never used the patch command.
patch -pnum /usr/lib/corel/bin/setupWPO2000 <some name I give your
diff snippet when I make it a text file> ????

I like your symlink solution better! ;-)

If you tell me what the name for the symlink the install program is
looking for II will get the SuSE tech folks to tell me the name of the
glibc library file that it should link to.

Thanks!
Jerry
