184.108.40.206-1 on Eee PC
Posted: Sun Apr 13, 2008 6:53 pm
I've trying to install version 220.127.116.11-1 on my Asus Eee PC (Xandros) and get the following error message when attempting to run QCad from the terminal prompt:
qcad: /lib/tls/lib.so.6: version 'GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by qcad)
And then my linux knowledge runs out

Thanks for your report. We have meanwhile updated all Linux packages with binaries that link against an older version of glibc. This should fix your problem.
Please download the updated version. Note that the version number of the package has a -2 behind it, i.e. "qcad-18.104.22.168-2-prof.linux.x86.tar.gz". If you still see the -1 package version, please click the reload button of your browser to update the page.

thanks for your prompt reply.
qcad now works fine.
As a matter of interest, where should I be installing qcad?

This depends a lot on the personal preference of the user. Some users like to keep such packages in /opt (optional), or /usr/local (packages that are not part of the distribution), others prefer to keep it in the home directory, for example /home/tux/applications/qcad or /home/tux/opt. Note that QCad does not spread its files around the file system like you might be used to from other Linux applications.
