I have succesfully compiled SCIRun on a RedHat 8.0 Linux Pentium Xeon biprocessor, but when I try to start the scirun executable, it dies with the following message:
Initializing the tcl packages: tcl, ./scirun: error while loading shared libraries: /lib/i686/ undefined symbol: __libc_waitpid,

If a hit ctrl-c, then it appears the following message:

This messages appears if I execute the application as root. When executing like a normal user it just shows the message:

Initializing the tcl packages: tcl, Segmentation fault

I would be very grateful If you have further information.
