If you installed Glibc 2.2 on a 6.4 system..you have probably broke a
lot of the system that was compiled to run software on a different
version of glibc. glibc is backward compatible but not forward..so if
they are looking for libs that are newer version then they were compiled
against then they will most likely error. You should just build a new
drive w/ a newer version of SuSE on it..transfer your configs and data
to the new system and do a latenight cut over.
