Hi, I recently unzipped the

I recently unzipped the compressed files for v 1.4.1 onto my PC (which runs linux redhat v7 virtually) and proceeded to do an Allwmake. This threw up some errors (too long to include here), but most notably was the following:
'Error 1
g++: lib/i686/ version GLIBC 2.3 not found'

Subsequently, I tried running the program by typing 'FoamX' at the shell prompt. This resulted in the message:
'Starting NameServer with inlet: localhost.localdomain:1234.
nsd: error while loading shared libraries: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory'

I understand that some files may be missing but do not know how to rectify these errors.

I would really appreciate advise on how to proceed. Also, is there a process for successful installation that is not apparent in the README file.
