firefox upgrade


i am running Firefox1.0.2 that came with my distro of Mandriva 10.1, but i want to upgrade FF to 1.0.6. i have gone to mozilla.org, downloaded the tar.gz file for FF1.0.6, and untarred it just fine. however, when i give the command "[...firefox-installer]$ ./firefox-installer" i get this error

./firefox-installer-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No suchfile or directory

what can i do to install FF1.0.6?
where can i get/open this ibstdc++.so.5 file that i cant open?

any help is appreciated,

Go to http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat...libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2)
get the file that suits your distro and install it (with Konkeror), and then install FF.

Or go to konsole, su, and
urpmi.addmedia thacs.rpms http://rpm.nyvalls.se/10.2/RPMS with hdlist.cz
urpmi.update
urpmi mozilla-firefox
(Thac has the 1.0.6 version.)

There you go !

you should be able to use rpmdrake to install that package (the C++, not the firefox). once that's done, you can install firefox 1.0.6 the way you first tried. keep in mind it will install it whereever you untarred it.

search for libstdc++.so.5
login as root,
run
rpm -i <filename>
then install firefox

anyway, i think you can opt for Opera, i feel it is better.
or may try netscape.

Code:
#urpmi libstdc++-5
to upgrade firefox, make sure you have the urpmi updates repositories for your distro setup and then run
Code:
#urpmi --auto-select
