I have some commercial software that's expecting me to install LSB on my RHEL6 (actually SL6) system. The problem is that this computer is meant to be a clean RHEL6 system, so that I can test my own software to confirm that it runs on out-of-the-box RHEL6.

I've got a bad feeling about this, and I thought I'd check here before doing this. Has anyone actually tried installing LSB on RHEL6? Did you have any problems afterwards? I installed LSB on a clean Ubuntu (10.10) system about six months ago, and regretted it (although the only specific problem I saw was that some desktop icons stopped working, although this eventually fixed itself - no idea how/why). I guess I'm basically not keen on having a second libc version hanging around.

Thoughts?

Thanks -

Al

... A second libc? What? Where did you hear this? –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 7 '11 at 0:08
