rtldi is an ELF program interpreter that makes it possible for executables to use their own ld-linux.so.2 and libc.so.6 and associated shared libraries, independent of the default versions installed in /lib and any other executable. It facilitates the simultaneous interoperation of programs that were originally linked using different generations of glibc6. In theory it should not be necessary, but in practice glibc6 has not always been backward compatible.
