gcc, g++ libstdc ? WHAT!?! Trying to install scribus


hi, im running mandrake 10.1 and im trying to install scribus.

i've tried urpmi ing, using control centre and compiling it myself but each time i get unsatisfied depencies of something named libstdc++.so.6
i cant find it anywhere, the same thing happens when i try to install gcc or g++ packages.

i'm new to linux so i'm sorry if i dont make much sense, i'd really appreciate some help cos its driving me nuts!

thnks again,

bailey

libstdc++ comes with g++, but with an rpm distro it will split it into it's own package or throw it in with something else

look for an libstdc++ and libstdc++-devel package on your install cd's

check /usr/lib and see what files there are name libstdc++

here's what mine looks like ( I have gcc-3.3 which has libstdc++.so.5)

% ls /usr/lib | grep libstdc++
libstdc++.a
libstdc++.la
libstdc++.so
libstdc++.so.5
libstdc++.so.5.0.6

command line tells me i have:

libstdc++.so.5@
libstdc++.so.5.0.6*

and i checked on the control centre, and found i have gcc 4.0 installed, does this explain anything?

just thought i'd post the output i was getting :

[root@localhost bailey]# urpmi mozilla-firefox
Some package requested cannot be installed:
mozilla-firefox-0.10.1-4mdk.i586 (due to unsatisfied libstdc++.so.6) (Y/n)

do you have libstdc++.so.6?

if firefox is what you want to install there are a couple of threads around here about not being able to install firefox ( the one from mozilla.org ) due to 10.1 shipping with libstdc++.so.6 and firefox needing libstdc++.so.5 ( this is due to 10.1 shipping with gcc 3.4 and firefox being built with a gcc 3.2 or 3.3).
One way around this ( this is just a quick and dirty workaround really ) is go and download the firefox binary from mozilla.org. next, google for a libstdc++.so.5 rpm (don't install it). install firefox ( make note of where the firefox-installer directory is going). then, open up the libstdc++ rpm and copy the libstdc++.so.5.0.6 ( the 6 on the end may be a little different) into the firefox-installer folder. and lastly, make a symlink to it ( ln -s <path to firefox-installer>/libstdc++.so.5.0.6 <path to firefox-installer>/libstdc++.so.5).
