RE: 8.1.7 + redhat AS 2.1 = trouble

There may be the same issues as with 8.1.7 on RH 7.1 - look on Metalink for those work arounds and try them on your AS 2.1.  

Basically, it has to do with 8.1.7 expecting the standard C libraries from RH 6.2 which were changed for RH 7.1 and later. Red Hat included a copy of the 6.2 libraries as one of the included rpms, but you have to make sure that you installed them (some configurations don't install them by default) and I seem to remember that you have to set an environment variable (LD_LIBRARY_PATH?) to point Oracle Installer at them instead of the defaults for later versions of Red Hat Linux. Once Oracle relinks during installation, you're okay.  

Anyway, the work arounds are well documented in Metalink, but you may have to search by RH 7.1 rather than AS 2.1.

Are there know binutils or other issues when installing 8.1.7 on redhat AS 2.1?

Attempts to run genclntsh keep
getting undefined references in

I can't find anything on Metalink or google about running AS 2.1 and 8.1.7 together.
