PROIV Version 5.0 (Green Screen)
Currently on Red Hat 7.3
Looking at migrating from Red Hat 7.3 to Fedora 10. Already worked around the obvious libc and libm issues by creating a compatible environment using the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable and setting up older versions of of the needed libraries (libm-2.2.5, libc-2.2.5, and ld-2.2.5). Also fixed the same problem with Iscollect by instructing it to run in the alternate compatible libraries environment. The application runs but displays errors sporratically when attempting to use /bin/sh. Obviously I can't change the /bin/sh symlink to an older version so I tried making /bin/sh a script that looked for PROIV only set environment variables and did an exec to an older version of sh that is compatible with the 2.2.5 libraries. That got rid of the errors in PROIV but still cannot print (everything else seems to work fine). However, the system will not boot without /bin/sh being a direct symlink to /bin/bash which requires the 2.9 libraries. Kind of a catch 22. Had to boot from a live CD and restore /bin/sh to the symlink directly to /bin/bash to get the system to boot again.
Does anybody have any ideas how to work around this issue. I cannot find anywhere in the PRO-IV config where I can tell it to use a different path for sh, /bin/sh appears to be hardcoded somewhere in the binaries but I could not find that string anywhere in the pro binary.
Also, if anybody has any idea why it might not be printing either using lp or lpr (I've tried updating PROIV to use lpr -P which does work from the command line even when using the compatible environment).
