Debian Testing 64, which xnviewmp ?

Post by Katamara » Sun Apr 04, 2010 12:00 pm

Hello.

I am testing xnviewmp on Debian Testing (Squeeze) Linux 64 bit.
What is the recommended xnviewmp version to use?

1. XnViewMP-linux-libc6.tgz
2. XnViewMP-linux.tgz

They 'both' seem to work.

Thank you.

It's for old OS with old libc.

Does that mean the libc6 is the 'shared' version and libc is the non-shared library.

Either way, both work on a Debian Testing 64 bit Linux system with shared 32bit libraries.

Which version of xnviewmp should I use if I do not use the ia32 shared libraries?
1. XnViewMP-linux-libc6.tgz
2. XnViewMP-linux.tgz

Current libc6 Version:
libc6 : Embedded GNU C Library: Shared libraries , version 2.10.2-6

Thank you.

That is much newer than what old Debian "Etch" uses (glibc 2.3.6), for example.

Here is the info my file manager reports about v.0.26:
Primary:
ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.8, stripped
Alternate, named "libc6":
ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.2.0, stripped

To be clear...

The correct Xnview version for a Debian Linux Testing/Sqeeze 64 bit version is:
XnViewMP-linux.tgz

Because the libc6 is older.

Thank you.
