Bug 45566

GemStone/S 64 Bit

3.3.9, 3.3.8, 3.3.7, 3.3.6, 3.3.5, 3.3.4, 3.3.3, 3.3.1, 3.3, 3.2.16, 3.2.15, 3.2.14, 3.2.13, 3.2.12, 3.2.11, 3.2.10, 3.2.9, 3.2.8.1, 3.2.8, 3.2.7, 3.2.6, 3.2.5

Linux SUSE 11

SUSE 11 using older glibc; LDAP not usable

As of version 3.2.5, GemStone was compiled on a platform using glibc version 2.12.  However, SUSE v11 sp3 uses an older version of glibc, v2.11.  The GemStone LDAP libraries have a dependency on a symbol in glibc v2.12; attempting to load the LDAP libraries on a system using glibc v2.11 encounters a library load error.

As a result, LDAP is not usable on SLES 11SP3 with glibc 2.11.x.  We believe that this is the only issue caused by the older glibc version; our tests have shown no other issues.

SLES 11 has been removed from the list of certified platforms.
