i´ve received a similar explanation today from Support, but with some additional information
"Yes, I am aware that LiveCode 9 does not work
because of the glibc dependency problem. However, fixing it is not proving
straightforward. The OS requires glibc 2.12 and cannot run with 2.14, but as
you know LiveCode requires 2.14. There are possibilities of getting them
installed together on the same machine, but Apache is not recognising the
Obviously we need to get LiveCode 9 running on our servers, and I'm in process
of getting a test server so that I can work out the changes needed without
risking everybody's accounts.”
Regarding your question:
I´ve installed 32bit Livecode Server Business and that is working now.
Did you try to run Livecode Server from ssh command line? That sometimes returns useful error messages.
You should send a support request to support at on-rev.com <mailto:support at on-rev.com> with your problem. It seems Robin Miller is very quick in responding.
I´ve sent my normal support request yesterday evening outside the office hours of Livecode Ltd. and received an answer today at 12:51PM which is 11:51AM in the UK.
That response time is of course acceptable for non emergency requests.
