How do I obtain the compat-libstdc++ compatibility files?


How can I be sure of the source. I had errors while trying to install intel C++ compiler on Fedora 8. I know the solution is to get the appropriate compat file. I tried for a whole day, I could never know if I have the right files. I use a core 2 duo system byt I am installing ia32. Can anyone be so kind to help? I relatively new to the linux environment.

yum install libstdc++-compat-devel
- or -
yum install compat-libstdc++-compat

Package naming varies by distribution.

On SuSE one does:
zypper install libstdc++-devel-4.2-24

These packages are provided by every decent distribution.

But I have located files named compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61.i386.rpm,...-62.i386.rpm, and ...-63.i386.rpm. Will all these work? Should I therefore use the latest, bearing in mind that the original problem was caused by my compiler being a little behind the operating system?

Thanks Whitemice

I have successfully installed the libstdc++ files as you directed. I also discovered that the various versions of the package are addressed to different versions of Fedora. I located my own version and "yummed" my way to a successful installation. Thanks
