I've been using balsa on my RedHat7.3 for a long time. The balsa level is
1.4.2 that came with RedHat. Recently I needed to upgrade the glibc from
2.2.5 to 2.3.2 (for various reasons I don't want to upgrade to RH9). I
was expecting (hoping) that application packages such as balsa would not be
affected as glibc-2.3.2 is binary-backward-compatible to 2.2.5. And in
fact, after installing a new XFree86 which I knew I would have to,
everything else did work - except balsa, which failed with a segv. I've
tried building a new balsa (1.4.4) from src on the glibc-2.3.2 system, both
with and without threads. Each of those also segv'd, althugh in different
places. (The one without threads did get as far as bringing up the window
and showing the mailboxes but then segv'd). I went as far as to build it
(1.4.4) one more time on a restored glibc-2.2.5, building with -static to
make a static-lib executable. I couldn't statically-link all shared-obj's
altogether but did link all the system libs such as libc.a. That also
segv'd when run on glibc-2.3.2, in yet another place.
Maybe what I'm trying to do is impossible - is there in fact some hard
dependency in the balsa 1.4.4 on glibc-2.2.5? But I thought I would ask
here in case anyone else has ever succeeded with this. Is it worth a
shot trying balsa-2.x.x? But I have gnome-1.4.
