The usual installation of Linux (RedHat or others) doesn't include installing some development packages that are needed for programming.

I don't know what tools RedHat provides other than rpm that allow you to see what rpms you have installed, and what is not installed. Check your libs for devel packages relating to programming. Also, try running 'rpm -q --whatprovides' to see if that reveals anything.

I faced many problems with .so files. Some thing like this worked out for me. You can copy that file from another machine and paste it in the required location, it works out. Check out and let me know.

What are you trying to run btw? Are you sure it's a linux executable, because is the solaris runtime linker.
