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.

How do I do that ? -- James D. Freels, Ph.D. Oak Ridge National Laboratory email@example.comI have the WP8 .deb package which depends on libc5, and which is available in Sid & Testing. The depends that is no longer avaialble is xlib6g, which has been replaced by libxaw6, libxaw6-dbg, & xlibs. I installed these but there are not recognized as the replacement for xlib6g.
Checkout equivs: This is a dummy package which can be used to create Debian packages which only contain dependency information. . This way, you can make the Debian package management system believe that equivalents to packages which other packages do depend on are actually installed. -Roberto
