Description jeff_grady 1999-03-02 00:11:56 UTC
While redhat 5.2 provides legacy libc5 libraries, it does not provide one for zlib. This causes any libc5 programs that need zlib to dump core.

can you give us some example applications that need them? If they are commercial applications for which you cannot get source code to recompile, we might consider it. But if they are applications for which there are newer glibc versions already available, the chances us of providing the library may be not as great. ------- Email Received From Jeffrey Grady <firstname.lastname@example.org> 04/16/99 00:11 -------

OK we are making sure this makes it into the 6.0 libc5 compatibility library. PrestonOK we are making sure this makes it into the 6.0 libc5 compatibility library. Preston

Confirm that version 6.0 fixed this issue. Reopen the bug if you are still experiencing problems.
