I need to use the Cisco packet tracer for college(I use Debian testing). Now I actually like that application, except it has one annoyance... it needs an ancient libssl version to run. What is even funnier is that their installer does not list it as a dependency, but it just refuses to launch.
Now when I install the old library alongisde the new libraries, some(rare) other applications, mostly some QT based applications will get confused and then they don't launch:
./otter-browser: relocation error: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libssl.so.1.0.0: symbol EVP_seed_cbc, version OPENSSL_1.0.0 not defined in file libcrypto.so.1.0.0 with link time reference
So now my questions are: Is there a simple way to install a container or chroot(hopefully debian based), install packet tracer in it, install that ancient openssl library on it? How? Can containers run X applications in the same X session that my only monitor uses? Can I copy paste between my host and the container?
