Error while using a newer version of glibc
This answer explains why
LD_LIBRARY_PATH doesn't work, and what you should do instead.
I read your post and tried ...
python: error while loading shared libraries: __vdso_time: invalid mode for dlopen(): Invalid argument
The error usually means that you have a mismatch between
libc.so.6. They must match.
If you are using direct loader invocation via
/home/MYNAME/.../ld-2.16.so, you must also arrange for
/home/MYNAME/.../libc.so.6 to be loaded.
You can do that by passing
--library-path ... to
ld-2.16.so, or setting
Your command with
ld-2.16 --library-path ... ls is almost correct. The thing you are missing is that
ld-2.16 will not search your
PATH. You need to give it full pathname:
ld-2.16 --library-path ... /bin/ls.
In my case it was centos 6 with python for pytorch.
I had errors like, etc.:
libraries: __vdso_time: invalid mode for dlopen(): Invalid argument ImportError: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by /home/evaldsu/.conda/envs/conda_env/lib/python3.6/site-
I installed alongside glibc-2.17 in local dir /opt/exp_soft/tools
then I installed in conda env patching tool (can install using other tools as well):
conda install -c conda-forge patchelf
then I patched binary of python to use different glibc path (you can do this with any binary). Be aware that it will change you python binary.
patchelf --set-rpath /opt/exp_soft/tools/glibc-2.17/lib:$HOME/.conda/envs/conda_inf/lib:/usr/lib64:/lib64:/lib --set-interpreter /opt/exp_soft/tools/glibc-2.17/lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 /home/evaldsu/.conda/envs/conda_inf/bin/python3.6
Another option is just install this script if you have full admin access:
