    statically linked unrar

    Hi,

    This is going to sound a bit strange, but I was wondering if anyone could provide me with a statically linked version of unrar. For whatever reason, whenever I attempt to run unrar I get the following message:

    unrar: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by unrar)

    If possible I'd like to avoid having to install glibc because it's caused me so much pain (when trying to install the latest version a few weeks ago).

    Thanks,

    ac

    It might be a good idea to mention the OS (and the version)

    SirDice, it's almost certainly Linux... (the GLIBC is a dead giveaway ). As for a statically linked version, is compiling it yourself not an option?

    I was about to make a sarcastic comment about the fact that I wouldn't have asked if I could compile it myself - and then I suddenly realised that I'd never even looked for a source package :P

    Quick google unrar source and I found what I needed. I think the reason I hadn't looked before is because I got a package off the "official" rar site and it didn't include the source so I figured that because it's proprietary it wouldn't come with the source or something.

    Anyhow, sorry for being an idiot. :P

    Why? My FreeBSD can also use glibc eventhough it has it's own libc. And a staticly linked executable from freebsd would definitely not run on linux. The other way around is no problem, you can run a linux binary on freebsd provided you've turned on the linux ABI support.
