3.3 Linux C Libraries

Question: [UNIX]
I get the message “.../sp.exe: no such file or directory” when running SICStus, even though sp.exe is there.

This error message appears when SICStus has been compiled using a different version of libc.so than your machine has installed. The message “no such file or directory” does not refer to sp.exe but to the particular libc.so version that SICStus expects.

SICStus is currently available as binary distributions for libc.so.6, a.k.a. glibc, versions 2.0, 2.1 and 2.2. Make sure to download the correct version.
