Ha, not to sure myself, but isn't that what you'd get, if you have the wrong, or a different version of gcc than the version that's used to produce the package ?

Just a thought!

You need to install basic development packages e.g libc-devel.

I had a similar problem installing a modem driver on a brand new box, because I set up it up box without the development tools

(from memory)


I think this should help you.

(For some reason I couldn't get these to install from the source RPM's so I ended up re-installed the entire OS as a Workstation )
