Hello, of course i considered to upgrade the system. The only reason
are the 10% of additional installed packages. In other words my employer
wouldn't pay the necessary time to rebuild/upgrade the system.

Hi, for an additional socket there is '-a' argument of running syslogd.
Solution would be a changed init script of syslogd.

Further investigations shows me dependencies of sed's '-i' argument.
I work around it for rpms specs with a patch file. Also a changed
init script is necessary.

But what isn't working is, building shared objects with libtool.
because of version mismatch ... haven't more time to look at it.
I tried to build statically and have some rpms now but i am unsure
of this statically version expect for higher memory consumption.

Is an old school type of employer that says, do not change the running 
system, and i agree ;)

Thanks Stanislav
