Debian "Etch" Stable still uses a 2.3.6 libc, and it seems that in the
installer executable there are symbol references from 2.4. Curiously,
the other executables and libraries don't seem to require 2.4, just
2.3. The only symbol from 2.4 is __stack_chk_failed, which might
indicate that something there was compiled with the -fstack-protector
(Stack overflow protection) feature, which is only supported from
gcc-4.1 and glibc 2.4.

Debian "Sid" Unstable or "Lenny" Testing (which are quite stable
despite the name, "testing" being more stable than "unstable") have
2.6 libcs.  Ubuntu switched to a 2.4 libc with the Edgy release (6.10,
i.e. October 2006). On our AMD64 Ubuntuns, Chimera 1.2422 runs fine.
