NConvert on Alpine Linux

Post by pzaj2 » Thu Oct 25, 2018 9:14 am

Hello

I recently tried to use NConvert on Alpine Linux v3.8.1.

Code: Select all

cat /etc/alpine-release
3.8.1

Code: Select all

** NCONVERT v7.20 (c) 1991-2018 Pierre-E Gougelet (Sep  6 2018/10:15:02) **
        Version for Linux x86 (X11)  (All rights reserved)
Unfortunately I'm getting 127 exit code:

Code: Select all

bash-4.4# ls
Formats.txt   Plugins.txt   ReadMe.txt    Usage.txt     WhatsNew.txt  license.txt   nconvert
bash-4.4# ./nconvert
bash: ./nconvert: No such file or directory
bash-4.4# echo $?
127
Is there a solution to this issue other than using an alternative utility? My guess would be some missing dependencies, but I can't find a list of required libraries / packages anywhere.

@EDIT
After a further investigation I found that NConvert is compiled using dynamic linking against glibc whereas Alpine linux comes with muslibc.

Is there any chance to get statically linked NConvert for linux or alternatively one compiled against muslibc?
