Problem installing Flash plugin


I'm using Mozilla 1.4 on Mandrake 9.2 and after using the Flash installer, the plugin doesn't appear in Mozilla. I've read that libstdc++ is needed, which I appear to have installed:

[root@manorhouse91 nick]# rpm -qa | grep libstdc++
libstdc++5-devel-3.3.1-2mdk
libstdc++5-3.3.1-2mdk

Any ideas what I can to do fix this?

Thanx.

You need to have libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so installed in /usr/lib (or somewhere listed in /etc/ld.so.conf) and make three symbolic links pointing
Code:
su
password
cd /usr/lib
ln -s libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2
ln -s libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3
ln -s libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so libstdc++-libc6.3-2.so.3

Does my libstdc++ need updating? I don't have those files. In my /usr/lib, I've got libstdc++.so.5@ and libstdc++.so.5.0.5*.

Go get it (the lib) on www.rpmfind.net. It worked for me when I used Mandrake. for further help, look at the link in my sig.

You should be able to find it on one of your MDK 9.2 CD's.

The libstdc++ packages from my CDs are already installed, as I've said above.

Another thread says to install this version of libstdc++: http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/mandra...mdk.i586.html. This is an older version than the one I'm using, so will I have any problems if I do install it?
