Already know ASE 12.5 won't install on RH9. I've seen John Sader's column and have asked him for assistance. Waiting for response.
What seems to work on RH9 (based upon previous reports) is installing
However these have been deprecated and replaced with
but glibc-common-2.3.2-82.i386.rpm conflicts with

Running ASE 12.5.x on RH 9 or RH EL 3.x
Added Aug 27 2003, thanks to Jason Froebe
ASE 12.5.x fails to run on RH 9 and the RH EL 3.x beta because of a fix added to glibc. This fix causes the dynamic linker to revert to the i386 version of glibc in situations where the binary being run accesses _errno directly. The fix was done to ensure correct behavior for multi-threaded applications. Unfortunately ASE isn't compatible with this fix. A solution to this problem is provided below:
We now have a solution (courtesy of Jakub Jelinek from RedHat) rather than just a workaround:
From the Rawhide branch:
1) ASE needs to use /lib/i686/libpthread.so.0 to run properly. The RedHat patch makes us load /lib/libpthread.so.0 instead. On a default installation of AS 2.1, the library /lib/tls/libpthread.so.0 was not installed.
2) Only glibc < 2.3.2-31 should load /lib/libpthread.so.0 if the warning is printed.
3) Later glibc 2.3.2-31 and higher, will correctly load the /lib/i686/libpthread.so.0.
Like I said, I know what is needed because I have read this article and many more indicating how to fix it but RH has deprecated (ie gotten rid of) the old glibc and replaced it with something that doesn't solve the problem any more. I need the old glibc...71 version and was wondering if anyone knew where I could download a copy. For anyone else reading this and considering Sybase 12.5 on RH you'll be happy to know that Sybase is releasing a patch but not until the end of Oct.

If I remember correctly I was able to --nodeps and ignore it. This was on a test box so your mileage may vary, caveat lector, do not try this at home, for professionals only, etc.
