and elf. check file `which agetty` and file `which lpd`. If they are
both elf, then only libc-5.3.12 from sunsite's pub/linux/GCC should do
it, otherwise you also need libc-4.7.6, the unofficial official a.out
update fixing the flock bug from sunsite's pub/linux/libs.
Alternatively, get util-linux-2.5 and recompile agetty as elf and
reinstall it and also fetch slackware-3.0's precompiled lpd (which is
elf). The latter might be wiser long term as a.out is not supported
anymore officially (that's why libc-4.7.6 is an unofficial update
although it has an official maintainer and everything).
Whilst you are fetching things, you might as well get kernel 1.99.4 or
and read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/* (especially Changes)
Perhaps this could help to clarify ?
