Not like you're looking for. This is part of the ELF spec, and you need to
understand a lot of things and how they fit together.
I'll have to look at that when I have time.
I now understand how libc.so.5 works since its ld-linux is version '1',
but I don't understand how the RedHat compat GLibc libraries work (if
they actually do).

No, there are packages that are dependent on them [the compat-glibc
2.0 & 2.1 packages]. That is why I originally installed them.
I know that that is the way it is supposed to be. Perhaps Corel-WINE
is a specific case since it is a 'hack', but it won't run on GLibc-2.3.2.
You do not use old libc binaries to get compatibility, you use
compatible libc binaries. If new libraries are not compatible, the soname

But, in doing this, I get back to my original suggestion that there is
a problem here. The GLibc-2.2.5 library did not have: "libSM.so.6",
so I added: "/usr/i386-glibc21-linux/lib" (which is from:
"compat-glibc-6.2-18.104.22.168.i386.rpm" mentioned above) to the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH. This appears to work (as I said, there is some

True, but I think that there are things which you don't completely
understand as well. I remain puzzled about it.
Again, thanks for your help.
