Thanks for the link !

Yes thats a way to go - unfortunately vdr is an application with lots of plugins which needs to be updated from time to time, so I need a second machine with 2.5.4 for compiling those.
Is there any way to turn that binary .so library into a static one with all its needed functions from glibc included ?
