Hi Germán,

Here is my suggestions for tracking down missing symbols.

> loading shared libraries: /lib/i686/ undefined 
> symbol: __libc_waitpid,

If you run:

> nm /lib/i686/ | grep __libc_waitpid

It should show you that the symbol is referenced but not defined.
What you need then to do is find where that symbol is defined.

> /usr/lib/

As it is a _libc_ symbol, it probably is in one of the's.  You
can see which one scirun is trying to use by:

> ldd scirun

Then I suggest running the 'nm' command on it and on any other libc's
you know about and see if you find the symbol.  This is strange
behavior.  What version of the compiler are you using?  Perhaps it
doesn't match the OS version?

Good luck with it.  Let us know what else we can do.
