Default 5.2 and Packettracer 53 emulation

This is my first post here so first i'd like to say thanks for the forum.
I'm trying to make cisco's packettracer work under OpenBSD 5.2 i386
  1. followed the manual to 'enable running Linux binaries
  2. installed fedora_base
  3. copy a working packettracer from a i386 linux distro (debian) to /usr/local/emul/fedora/ and also to /usr/local/emul/debian both with the proper libraries
When i try to run it in both cases i get
'./PacketTracer5: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (requiredQtWebKit.so.4)'

i tried to use a preload (LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<the proper path> ./Packettracer5 with the same result.

I'm stuck here... i couldn't find any help
thanks for your time

Hello and welcome!

For OpenBSD 5.2, the emulators/fedora/base package contains libraries from Fedora 4, which uses libc-2.3.6. I don't run Linux emulation, I just looked through CVS to see what the packing list for 5.2-release contained.

You can either acquire a more up-to-date libc from a more modern Linux, and see if that solves your problem, or, you can upgrade from 5.2 to -current, as the -current version of emulators/fedora/base is Fedora 10, which uses libc-2.9.

If you are considering -current, please read FAQ 5.1 carefully before making the jump. It is the development branch, and has special considerations.

If you are considering trying to use a -current emulators/fedora/base port/package on your -release system, please don't attempt it. Instead, read FAQ 15.4.1 carefully.

Hi and thanks for the answer.
After some frustrated attempts i decided to do it with debian (just because i felt more confident after being using it for years) so i took my debian 386, i tar the whole usr/ and i paste it in my openbsd under usr/local/emul/debian. Of course it had to work and it did it, i don't dare to mark this as solved 'cos i understand it was the "less elegant" solution but is working for me. The End
