UT2004 problems in Mandrake 10.2


I've been running FC3 on all my systems for quite some time now and everything was working fine with UT2004. I decided to try Mandrake, and now I'm having trouble. When I try to run UT2004 it gives me the following error:

Code:
./ut2004-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I've tried making a symbolic link to both /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib, but nothing is working. I've been researching for a couple of days now and decided to post here as a last resort. I really don't want to return to FC3 because Mandrake runs better and seems to have more useability for the average user (IE: My wife and kids ). I would greatly appreciate any help.

I'm running Mandrake 10.2 (same problems in 10.0 and up) on various configurations. All the systems are running Nvidia video cards. Thank you in advance for the help.

You are missing the file "libstdc++.so.5" wich is a compatibility library for software compiled for older systems. (you also need this if you want to use older version of the SUN Java Development Kit)

Try installing the package: libstdc++6-3.4.1-4mdk.rpm

If this still does not work, you might and you feel lucky, you could symlink the libstdc++.so.6 to libstdc++.so.5.
This works most of the time, but not allways.

OK...I found the problem. I did have a later version of the library on the system, but, as huibert.alblas Pointed out, some things require that older version. I actually installed an older version, but it wasn't a Mandrake specific package. I found this link for a package that works with all 10.x releases. I hope this helps others, because it took me a bit to figure out what I was doing wrong. Thanks for the help
