Okay, the package I installed from RPMfind was for 'Polish(ed) Linux Distribution' but I thought I'd give it a try anyway, since there were no RPMs that listed Mandrake as the distribution.
Obviously, that didn't work, as blender would not recognize the libraries. So I uninstalled the package and tried one of the others RPMfind had listed. This time the file was libstdc++-3.3.3-41.i586.rpm and the distro listed was SUSE 9.1. Only, when I tried installing it, rpm told me:
warning: libstdc++-3.3.3-41.i586.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 9c800aca
file /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5.0.5 from install of libstdc++-3.3.3-41 conflicts with file from package libstdc++5-3.3.2-6mdk
So, obviously I've already had libstdc++ installed the whole time. So the specific flie blender is looking for must not be there. I did a search for filenames containing ""libstdc++" and "so" and the following files were found:
a shortcut to the same file named /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5
So the file blender is looking for wasn't installed. Why not? Is there a way to get blender to recognize one of the files that is present? If not, how can I get the correct file installed?
