I suspect that Mathematica 4.1 was released before libm.so.6 ever
existed; thus without relinking the object files (which only Wolfram
has), the shared library calls will always fail. FWIW, Mathematica 5.1
links this way on my system:
/opt/Mathematica/5.1/SystemFiles/Kernel/Binaries/Linux> ldd MathKernel
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xffffe000)
libgmp.so.3 => /usr/lib/libgmp.so.3 (0x40029000)
libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x40056000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x40079000)
librt.so.1 => /lib/librt.so.1 (0x400cb000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x400de000)
On your system, does libm.so.5 and crew even exist? Might there be a
compatibility RPM to solve your problem? I don't know RH that well;
using Slack here. On a long shot, you could try creating a symlink for
libm.so.5 (something like 'ln -s /lib/libm-2.3.4.so /lib/libm.so.5';
check your current libm.so.6 symlink), but I'm not sure that would work
Then again, I could be totally misunderstanding what's happening.
