I'd like to take a look at this program, and possibly suggest some other features that could be added to it. However, I don't think it helps with the issue at hand. As long as /lib/ld-linux.so.2 is a symlink to musl libc.so, no attempt to load glibc will be made. The problem is that, while musl largely strives for binary compatibility, there are a few places where it's difficult or impossible without additional patch-ups that aren't yet done. I'm not clear on whether any of the issues affect Opera, but for such a large program I'd be fairly surprised if they don't (albeit happily surprised, of course). Rich
