StarOffcie 5.0 does not work with new glibc on RH 6.0

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-05-03 15:41:59 UTC
A non-broken version of StarOffice will ship on the vendor CD
of the Official version of Red Hat 6.0.

*** Bug 2523 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

I recently upgraded to RH6.0 and found that StarOffice
nolonger works.  I tried a fresh reinstall of StarOffice and
found that I was missing libraries.  I beleive that SO is
compiled to work under glibc2 and RH6.0 has glibc2.1
installed on it.  I thought glibc2.1 was backward compatible
with glibc2.  I guess not 100% compatible.
