VLC requires a recent build environment, but you want an old run-time. When
VLC is built natively, the recent build environment implies a recent run-time.
You have basically two ways around this:
- cross-compile from recent Linux to old Linux, or
- use a recent tools chain built on top of an old run-time.
I don´t think anybody here has tried either, and I strongly suspect that both
ways would involve setting up a custom tool chain is unavoidable. At least, I
believe that Debian/Ubuntu do not provide such a tool chain.
