Yep. Got a couple here. Basically follow the same guidlines I suggested for
RH9. (setting LD_ASSUME_KERNEL in a wrapper script)

Make sure glibc is patched to current and then do this after installing

cd /usr/openv/netbackup/bin
rm bparchive
ln -s bpbackup+ bparchive+
for i in bp bpbackup bpbkar bpcd bpclimagelist bpclntcmd bpdynamicclient bphdb 
bpjava-msvc bpjava-usvc bplist bpmount bprestore jbpSA jnbSA tar xbp
    mv $i $i+
    echo '#!/bin/sh' > $i
    echo 'LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5' >> $i
    echo 'export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL' >> $i
    echo "exec /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/${i}+ \$*" >> $i
    chmod +x $i
cat > bparchive <<"EOF"
exec /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bparchive+ $*
chmod +x bparchive
