Issues installing vshell on linux


I am running redhat enterprise v4 update 3 with glibc v2.3.4
I want kerberos support and therefore need libgssapi-kerb5.so & libgssapi.so
I have the rpm for those, but it says i need glibc v2.4, which i dont have.
I haven't found it anywhere.
Any ideas? maybe there is a gssapi rpm for my version?

If I were doing this ...

I'd try this link & build it from src.rpm:

using rpmbuild, i'd issue:
# rpmbuild --rebuild glibc-2.4-8.src.rpm

If you don't have any dependency failures, it'll creates all necessary rpms.
Then, from the RPMS directory, run:
# rpm -Uvvh glibc*

Well, I have found another source for libgssapi and have used it.
Now, all that remains is to do the following, taken from this site:

Note: To use Kerberos v5 authentication via GSSAPI, you must manually create a soft link from your libgssapi-krbs.so to libgssapi.so. libgssapi.so must also be in the dynamic linker library path. In Red Hat Linux, this may require modification of ld.so.conf or setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment.

I do not have the file libgssapi-krbs.so, only libgssapi.so
Where should i put this soft link ?
How do i modify my LD_LIBRARY_PATH ? what should i add to it ?

Thanks for your help,
