install error: GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6

I'm trying to install a file on RHEL4 (2.6.9-89.0.23) and I'm constantly getting the error:

install error: GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference.

Can anyone help me out with this? I can't get past it to finish the install.

What package are you trying to install?  Where did you get the package?
You have to get the version that matches your RHEL,
did you try using yum install "package"?
or up2date install "package"?

this is an e-mail server that was made by Netscape 100 years ago. :)

I know it runs on RHEL4 because there is one working as we speak, but it was installed by someone else a long time ago and I can't get past this problem

Are you compiling the email server from source?
If not, you need to get the glibc package. compile and install it in /usr/local/.
Then add the /usr/local/lib in /etc/ld.so.conf file above the /usr/lib file.
Check the currently operating system with this and see if that is what it has:
ld /usr/local/bin/netscape_email_application or /usr/local/sbin/netscape_email_application.
This will tell you all the dependencies that it has which you can then compare to the other system.
look in /usr/local/src for packages/compiled on the old system.

Think I may have found it....

When I opened the console and then ran:

LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1
(and then)
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL

**and in the same console window ran the ./setup it seemed to go by. I'm getting an LDAP error but it has nothing to do with what was breaking it before.

The problem is that you do not have 2.4 kernel which may have unexpected consequences down the road.
