Another quick thing... I had a problem early this morning (aparently) as a result of an emerge update.

Bunch of programs were complaining that libstdc++.so.6 was missing...

Problem was for some reason gcc-config didn't get run when it updated my compiler from gcc-3.4.3-blah to 3.4.4. Once I ran gcc-config it correctly my /etc/ld.so.conf file and everything was groovy again.... you might have run into the same problem?

Sorry... I wish I had checked the result of my emerge world earlier....

Ok.. what happened was I got a gcc update to version 3.4.4 which replaced the version I had previously... but emerge didn't run the gcc-config tool which updates the system paths and linking information to the new gcc... so as a result the system couldn't find the libstdc++ library. Running gcc-config i686-pc-linux-gnu-3.4.4 updated everything and fixed the program.

Hello there!

This is my problem too! But...
Running 'gcc-config powerpc-unkonwn-linux-gnu-3.4.3' did not work... (Yes, I'm using ppc)
Still looking for that 'libstdc++.so.6' and there is a message about missing portage CHOST too...
When I run 'gcc -v' everithing points to the new gcc.

Any idea?

Is the correctly directory containing the libstdc++.so.6 file in your /etc/ld.so.conf file? If not, add it and you should be all set.


EDIT:
Make sure to run ldconfig anytime you update /etc/ld.so.conf....
