I have fpcalc installed on Linux and when I execute the following command:


I get an error saying:

./fpcalc: /lib/ version `GLIBC_2.7' not found (required by ./fpcalc)

I have tried googling around and I could not find a straight answer to fix this problem

I am running CentOS release 5.8 (Final) and glibc-2.5-81.el5_8.2 installed

CentOS 5.x is based around GLIBC version 2.5. The version of fpcalc that you have is compiled against GLIBC 2.7. You will need to compile fpcalc against the C library available for your system.

The source code seems to be available here.
