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.

Yeah, there's what Chris was talking about, this is where it gets rough (and why it would have been easier to do it during the install). You have X.5.22-24 and need X.5.22-30 ( a mere 6 revision difference!). That was always a huge problem I ran into with RPM's.
Anyway, to address the problem... You'll need to either (Answers differ on which way is better, I'll tell you both and you can decide):
A. Replace the installed libstdc++ with the older one (probably not the better option) and then go from there;
B. find the matching libstdc-devel to the installed version (better idea, but might be really hard to do) OR a 3rd, probably not great idea:
C. Force the install and hope it works. This really really really shouldn't be done on something like GCC dependencies as it's a very important program and you don't want it to be shifty (unstable).
Ok, I finally got the libstdc++ installed and the devel version too...
now I needed the gcc-c++-3.2-44 installed but it needs gcc=3.2-44 and I have installed the version 46 :-(
how comes i'ts conflicting? Can I uninstall version 46 and reinstal version 44? Or is there a version 46 from gcc-c++? so they have the same version?
I hope there is a way to do this ;-)
As long as all of these are of the same version, they should go in fine. Also, if you install them all at the same time, it might work out better (to save you from redundent/cyclic dependencies like gcc depends on gcc-c++ and gcc-c++ depends on gcc).
rpm -e gcc-3.2-46.i586.rpm
--> error: package gcc-3.2-46.i586.rpm is not installed
but when i do -i i get the error that the package is already installed. Now which one is correct? is it or not installed? When triing to install an older version of cpp (needed by gcc) i get the error that gcc needs cpp so i guess it's installed, than why can't i unintall it?
any ideas on uninstalling gcc?
ok, I tried the -e --force from gcc but it doesn't work since you can only force a installation, upgrade, rmsouce and rmspec
so, i figured, i'l intall version 44 from cpp and force it but nope, beceause of the dependencie with gcc
So I figured, i'll try replacefiles for gcc version 44 but nope, beceause it also needs version 44 of cpp.
So as for me, the only way to get version 44 from both cpp and gcc is to remove gcc first but since force doesn't work :-( i have no idea how to get it unistalled or removed.
I also rebuild my db to see if i could uninstall it than but it gives an error on the updatdb command
it does the rebuilddb but not the updatedb.
I think after i have finally installed blackbox, I'll start learning and using linux a lot more, it seems a very nice playground for me ;-) and at least people or helping eachother out if you need help.
Just wish i could delete/uninstall gcc or adapt version 46 to 44 for cpp ang gcc
