Default Redhat Linux/CFX
Posts: n/a
I recently loaded cfx5.7 on a machine with redhat 9.0, I was suprised that it did not run. I checked the cfx website and it shows it should run under Redhat 9.0 Here is the error message I got, perhaps there is a way to fix it

CFX-5.7 (C) 1996-2004 CFX Ltd. All rights reserved./home/cfd5/cfx57/CFX-5.7/bin/linux/Launcher.exe: relocation error: /home/cfd5/cfx57/Shared/qt-3.2.3-1/lib/Linux/ symbol _res, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file with link time reference An error has occurred in cfx5:

The CFX Launcher /home/cfd5/cfx57/CFX-5.7/bin/linux/Launcher.exe exited with return code 127.

Try this.

In the CFX-5.7.1 installation manual page 22 it says that to use CFX-5.7.1 on Linux RedHat 9.0 platforms you need to install an RPM which patches the system to GLIBC version 2.3.2-27.9.4 or later. This RPM is available at tml. You can check which version you have installed using the command: rpm -q glibc

A workaround while you are checking this is to use CFX-Pre with mesa (software) graphics rather than hardware graphics. You can do this by running CFX-Pre from the command line using cfxpre -gr mesa
