library version

I will install a application to RHEL 5 linux box , but when I install it , it pop the system (RHEL 5) library is newer than the application that is supported , that mean the application is not supported on RHEL5 ( my application is very old system ) , except downgrade the library ( re-install the older version of library) , can advise how can I "cheat" the application when installation , so that the application is supported on the system ? thx

Re: library version

every software has its own dependency.

Not for application but also OS.

Please clearly specify what you need to know.

That can help you to get more close.

Re: library version

put this software in it's own directory. get a hold of the older library file, and put it somewhere together with your installed software (or somewhere else, but _seperate_ it from the rest of your system).

now you can use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the place where that old lib is and the software should be able to find it.
