Enterprise Linux 6 shared object?

Any chance of getting FrontPanel 4.2.5 compiled for an Enterprise Linux 6 flavor OS (maybe RedHat or CentOS)? FC17 uses too new a version of glibc (2.14 vs 2.12) which means any customer running even the most recent version of Enterprise Linux is out of luck.

Please contact support@opalkelly.com

These forums are for community discussion and only Opal Kelly will be able to provide a specific compile target version of the library.

Agreed! We make heavy use of CentOS and Debian because of their stable release processes and roadmap, but an artifact of this is that fundamental components (like libc and libc++) are behind players like Fedora and Ubuntu. I for one would certainly welcome some builds for those distros, and I presume that it would not take much time or effort to provide them. Otherwise we are stuck with a very old (soon to be obsolete?) build.

CentOS 6.4:

  • glibc Version: 2.12
  • glibc++ Version: 3.4.13 (need 3.4.15)

Debian 7:

  • glibc Version: 2.13-38 (need 2.14)
  • glibc++ Version: 3.4.17

So oddly enough, the problem with FrontPanel on CentOS 6.4 is “ImportError: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found" because C++ is not new enough, whereas on Debian 7, the error is "ImportError: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: versionGLIBC_2.14’ not found” because libc is not new enough.
