Dynamic libraries? termcap? curses?
I have an application upgrade provided as a binary for
Redhat 5.1. This is a mature C program, basic business
app, ported to many unixen, been around for 15 years at
least. (Conetics C/books 4.0)
Naturally I want to run this on Debian 2.0, as I have
every machine here running Bo or Hamm (except one win3.1
machine). And the prior version was on Bo for a year or
It looks for
When I had the termcap compatability package installed,
some binaries would link to both libc5 and libc6 and
What I now have is
symlinked as the above two libs.
This passes the basic "seems to work" test. And my
gut instinct is that an old product like this isn't
looking for anything special in termcap or curses.
But I don't pretend to be a expert, or have the source.
Am I playing with fire here?
What is the proper thing to do?
