for my fc1, the right sequence is

rpm -ivh compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh compat-libstdc++-devel-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh compat-gcc-c++-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm

I am Using Fedora Core 2

If i try to install compat-libstdc++-devel-8-
i get following message

Failed dependencies:
compat-libstdc++ = 8- is needed by compat-libstdc++-devel-8-3.3.4

I don't know what i have to install.

another error is

rpm -ivh compat-gcc-c++-8-
Error: Failed dependencies:
compat-gcc = 8- is needed by compat-gcc-c++-8-

just rpm -ivh compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.126.i386.rpm works.

Thank you for any help.

It looks like you are trying to install the devel package without the library package.


yum localinstall compat-libstdc++-devel-8-

That should then use yum to get anything needed to install it (probably only compat-libstdc++-8-

I am having exactly the same problem. I saw this post and downloaded the three RPMs and tried to install them in the order suggested by FC2tick, but nothing works. I get the same set of errors that hamcycle got. Then I installed yum, but I am not sure how to use it. I tried it, but did not work:

yum install libstdc++-compat
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 22, in ?
import yummain
File "/usr/share/yum/", line 21, in ?
import clientStuff
File "/usr/share/yum/", line 18, in ?
import rpm
ImportError: No module named rpm

Could someone help please? Thanks.

I uninstall the lib above and now rpm and yum does not work.
Where do I find the source .gz package of the files needed by rpm?
I need a fresh install from the sources packages to bypass the rpm needs.
