|[PLUG] Need a supported distro with old glibc|
As I've looked into it, that's quite old...distributions that included glibc 2.11 were released around 2010. None of these are likely to be getting updates anymore.
The exceptions appear to be RHEL 5 / CentOS 5, released in 2014 with glibc 2.5. However, support for those is scheduled to end in March 2017 (according to wikipedia).
Am I missing something here? Why would a company have their flagship product not installable on an OS with a lifespan longer than 20 months?
I'm waiting for a response from tech support but wondering whether I'm missing something--do some distros support more than one glibc version at the same time? Is there some other way around this issue, so I can use this product and not have to install again that soon? The alternative is to go pay for a Windows server machine--Server 2008 is supported until 2020.
