I am running Linux on my DOS machine, Kernel 2.0.0 and a Slackware distribution.
I tried to install StarOffice 3.1, but got an script error when trying to run it. I think this is caused by the wrong libc version.
The StarOffice readme says that I need libc "versino 5.4.4 or later. Is further says that I can tell the version of my libc files by listing the files in my /lib directory.
I did so, and I have a version 5.3.something.
I wrote customer support, and they said I need the later version and gave me an URL where to download it. Unfortunately, it turned out that the files there were for a 680x0 processor, and I needed "i386" files.
I looked for such files, and found a file libc-5.4.38.bin.tar.gz on ftp.linux.org.uk/pub/linux/libc
1) are these files the correct ones?
1a) If no, where can I find suitable files
2) how do I install these files? Just unpacking (how?)??
TIA. If it turnes out that the answer has to be quite lengthy, I'll raise the amount of points.
