WordPerfect8 on Debian/Sid ?
I haven't used WordPerfect8 from Corel in a while and just discovered
that it no longer runs on my Debian/Sid system. I think it is because
it requires the previous version of the libc package (woody). I have
copied these files (found by ldd on wordperfect executable) form a
working Woody system, but libc comes first in the library search.
If I place all the files in /usr/local/lib, then export
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib, it picks up all but libc. Here is the
fea::/home/fea/tmp/: ldd /commercial/wordperfect8.0/wpbin/xwp
libXt.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6 (0x4001e000)

libdl.so.2 => /usr/local/lib/libdl.so.2 (0x40359000)
ld-linux.so.2 => /usr/local/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x4035c000)
/commercial/wordperfect8.0/wpbin/xwp: can't resolve symbol
I would like to set up a wrapper script that sets up these variables
temporarily just to run wordperfect. How do I do that ?
