Re: wordperfect on linux
This "segmentation fault" problems can at best be attempted by
guess-work. This is my guess ... could be wrong ! No harm in
giving it a try.
I had installed WP8 on my slink box, and thereafter upgraded
to potato, package by package .... WP8 never broke in the
transition. Some of my old lib files are still hanging around.
I vaguely remember having seen something about glibc version
in the WP8 docs ....
I just checked my box. I seem to be having glibc2.1 (viz
libstdc++2.9-glibc2.1) from oldlibs also installed. This
package contains an additional runtime library for C++
programs built with the gnu/egcs compiler version 1.1.x.
I am not quite sure, but this may give a clue.
