Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

In my attempt to install packages that were considered "failed dependenices", I installed the package called " compat gcc-7.3-2.96.126.src.rpm". This package is supposed to contain the files "libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3".
I then read on a site to link these two files. Which I have done but I still couldn't install avg antivirus software. Now, when I type in ls -l the files are flashing in red.
How do I fix it up, could you tell me please?
Here's what I typed at the bash terminal:
# ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so/usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-2.so.3
Also, where can I actually find the proper missing dependencies for programs? AVG for instance and tuxpaint
Distribution: Distribution: RHEL 5 with Pieces of this and that.

I have the same version file /usr/lib/libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so and it comes from the rpm package. My system is CentOS 4.4+. Did not see which distro you are using?
Then the file /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 is a symbloic link of /usr/lib/libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so
Now in your first post you changed the link name from what you need from the beginning to libstdc++-libc6.1-2.so.3 instead of libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3
So to create the link if /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 exist is to use the command
ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3
First make sure the file /usr/lib/libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so exist
Second make sure the link /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 does not exist.
Also what you have is a source rpm. How are you installing it?
Brian1 makes a good point. That "src" in the RPM name means that what you have is probably not what you want. That RPM gives you the source code for compiling the libraries, not the libraries themselves. I think what you want is an RPM with the same name, without the "src" in the name. I could be wrong (you might be compiling the libraries from source), but that RPM will not work without being compiled first.
