How to run Interproscan with old GLIBC 2.12 on centos cluster?

I would like to run interproscan on cluster through PBS /torque. I tried wtih the test script and could not succeed because of the GLIBC_2.14. The reason is the entire software stack of CentOS 6.8 which our cluster is running was built on top of glibc 2.12 which at the moment can't be upgraded to glibc 2.14.

My question is is there a way to do interproscan with glibc 2.12 or there is some way to fix this issue (other then upgrading glibc 2.12 to glibc 2.14 )

I am sure there must be some way. Any idea?

The script I use and the out put is as follows:

#PBS -l nodes=1:ppn=4
#PBS -m abe
#PBS -N interproscan5Job
#PBS -o /home/tb44227/nobackup/my_interproscan/interproscan-5.22-61.0/test_ipr_cluste_torque
#PBS -j oe
#PBS -q short
#PBS -l walltime=01:00:00

# start of similation interproscan on torque
# test input file iin the interproscan directory

We had the same problem and solved it by re-compiling the few binary that are causing problems:

Follow the instructions at

sfld_preprocess/sfld_postprocess Instructions for compiling the "sfld_preprocess" and "sfld_postprocess" binaries can be found in the src/sfld/1/README file in your extracted InterProScan 5 distribution (release 5.22-61.0 onwards).

I suggest that you download the binary files of sfld from here: then replace all files in ${INTERPROSCAN5HOME}/bin/sfld/ with them, it worked for me.

rpsblast and sfld_postprocess in interproscan will meet this issue. you can replace these two package with an old version. the old version of rpsblast and sfld_postprocess can be found in :
