Blender problem: can't run Blender, anyone know how?


I've downloaded Blender 2.42 from http://www.blender.org/ recently, bunzip2 and tar-ed the blender package (extracted it).

I then tried to run it, but I get this error message instead:

******************************************************************
[root@bigserver blender-2.42a-linux-glibc232-py24-i386]# ./blender
./blender: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[root@bigserver blender-2.42a-linux-glibc232-py24-i386]#
******************************************************************

Anyone know the problem about the libstdc++.so.5 problem?



I know that my 3D graphic acceleration/driver is working because I can play Quake 3.

Much appreciation in advance,



Chuong.

Most likely, your distro uses libstdc++.so.6. You haven't provided a lot of information. For example, if you had put your distro in your profile, and it said that you were using Fedora Core 5, then I could tell you to install the compat-libstdc++ package. If your distro is RPM based, then go to http://rpm.pbone.net and search for "libstdc++.so.5" in advanced search. You can filter your search by distro and distro version.

How come Blender can't run with libstdc++.so.6?

Yes, I'm using Fedora Core 5.

You probably would need to read through your source code to be certain. The dependency could be indirect.
Also, which version of blender is included in the binary package? That version may use libstd++.so.6.

Uh...I'm not sure, sorry.

I have Blender 2.42.

My Fedora Core 5 uses libstdc++.so.6.

Maybe you misunderstood, or I was mistaken, but isn't there a blender rpm package on one of the Fedora Core 5 installation disks? I thought that either the binary version either was built differently, or it would automatically install the needed glibc++-compat package.

Uh....Fedora Core 5 disk?

What disk?

I downloaded the Fedora Core 5 through BitTorrent.

I didn't know Fedora Core comes with Blender!? Do they?

That's not illegal right?

If you downloaded a FC 5 dvd from bittorrent, didn't you burn it to a disc?
You could have tried "yum install blender".
Maybe I'm remembering wrong and FC5 doesn't ha

Maybe I'm remembering wrong and FC5 doesn't have a blender package.

Also, if you compile from source, sometimes the tarball will have similar dependencies, but include the -devel packages as well which have the header files.

Sorry about the late reply jschiwal.

I tried to do the yum install blender thing but it failed.

I've checked the blender hardware/software requirements and it says that Blender (not sure if it's the latest version but I think it is) is only supported for Linux kernel 2.5.x I think and I'm currently using Linux kernel 2.6.17 (which is newer than the supported Blender version).

Anyhow I hope that doesn't mean Blender won't be able to run on Fedora Core 5.

I think I should try to install the libstdc5++.so like you say and see how things turn out.

So how would I go about installing the libstdc5++.so neatly (without manually going to a website and clicking links) ?

Do I use yum or something?

(By the way, I don't think Blender comes with the Fedora Core 5 package. This is from past experience using Fedora Core 4. However, I wasn't the one who installed Fedora Core 4 back then, so I'm not sure if they've added Blender to Fedora Core 5 distributions. Anyone who have any clue about this, please comment. My DVD drive is stuffed up so I can't check my Fedora Core 5 DVD disc.)



Chuong.

Oh damn.

I just checked the Fedora Core 5 package list and a link for blender-2.42-6.fc5.i386.rpm existed. . .
(http://fedoraproject.org/extras/5/i3....42-6.fc5.html)

Weird...

^.^!

Downloading it now, hope it works.

The file seems to have a different name to the one I download from http://www.blender.org/ even though the package list says their blender is from the same address.
