X not starting due to not having GCC/GLIBC... but I have them installed?


Hello. I am running slackware-current on a 2.4.31 kernel. I installed slack on this server to mainly operate as a squid proxy, which has worked fine--however, as a proxy, I haven't really needed the GUI. This morning I figured I would attempt to start up X, which had been working fine, when I got these errors:

Code:
/usr/X11R6/bin/fbsetroot: /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1: version `GCC_4.2.0' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)
/usr/X11R6/bin/fbsetroot: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)
/usr/X11R6/bin/fluxbox: /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1: version `GCC_4.2.0' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)
/usr/X11R6/bin/fluxbox: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)
I am attempting to run these as root, figuring that permissions or whatnot would be the problem, but no dice. I appreciate any help I can get here and, as always, if I fix it, I'll post here so others can be informed as to what the hell went wrong

Thanks

root...

Sometimes there may be protection against 'root' doing things with X for security reasons, maybe rather recently implemented, you may check that (I got into something similar on Debian some months ago but sorry don't remember details)

Well, I tried that -- doesn't seem to have worked.

Quick Update: This problem is still happening, but it now happens with just about everything.

Code:
tactical@slacknuke:~# bittorrent-curses
/usr/bin/python: /lib/libgcc_s.so.1: version `GCC_4.2.0' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)
/usr/bin/python: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)

EDIT: Problem Solved, feel free to close the thread.

For anyone searching for this problem -- What tripped me up was that I had updated gcc-g++ to slackware-current's version. Unfortunately, this clashed with my other installed versions. All I did was find an old version of gcc-G++ for slackware 10.2 (which I installed this with) from a mirror and then uninstalled the newer version. After a quick rm /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.8. and rm /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (which was a symlink), I installed the older package and, all of a sudden, everything works. It's like magic!
