FC4 doesn't have libstdc++.so.5 but libstdc++.so.6


I found I can't install many softwares because the version of libstdc++.so in FC4 is 6 while in legacy FC is libstdc++.so.5
Many software installation program can't fine libstdc++.so.5 and then they abort the installation.

How can I solve the problem?

thanks

What programs, for example, are you trying to install? Can you list some?

Do you have all the compat libraries installed?
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...c4.html#compat

[mirandam@charon ~]$ rpm -q --whatprovides libstdc++.so.5
compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.fc4
[mirandam@charon ~]$ rpm -q --whatprovides libstdc++.so.6
libstdc++-4.0.0-8

You need to install the libstdc++.so.5 library.

Enter the command as root:
# yum install libstdc++.so.5

Unhappy Not for me

Trying to load Thunderbird in Fedora 4, and having the same issue:

[root@localhost thunderbird]# ./thunderbird
./thunderbird-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[root@localhost thunderbird]#

Tried the above solution, but it did not work for me. Had to switch users and get email to activate after registering here, so ran it again to copy resulting error message:

[root@localhost jmehl]# yum install libstdc++.so5
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
updates-released 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
extras 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
base 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: libstdc++.so5
Nothing to do
[root@localhost jmehl]#

Any suggestions?

Edited: Istalled compat-libstdc++-33 and compat-libstdc++-296 and ran it again...it works now.

What kind of problems? Also, as said before, it's in the "compat-libstdc++-33" package, so you can install that manually.

Install libstdc++.so.5

download compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.fc4.i386.rpm from here:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html

install it:
#rpm -ivh compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.fc4.i386.rpm

run command:
#yum install libstdc++.so.5

For users running Fedora 8, I think it is easier to just double click on the rpm package with the appropriate compat file (compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-62.i386.rpm appropriate for Fedora 8 with 32 bit installation).
