libstdc++ differences ( post #1)

i am trying to install BitDefender in my laptop. However a dependency issue happened. the package needed the

well, i used the install packages in gui 'configure you computer' section and found out that i have to install libstdc++2.10-2.96-0.83mdk....

i have downloaded it already. however through the course of the search i can't believe that mandrake won't have a gcc library so i searched through the and found out that i have the available packages:


so i am not sure if i have a problem with my installers . if not, what is the difference with libstdc++5-..... and libstdc++2.10-....... ? how should i install the BitDefender? should i really need to install the libstdc++2.10-2.96-0.83mdk? would there be any conflict?

yes, most of the guys told me that i dont need to have an antivirus. well, iam just safety conscious.
why BitDefender? -well i dont have much time when in comes to tweaking. a bit of a concern using fprot and clamav(i heard from reviews).

1. do you mean that the two libstdc's are different?
2. that the new versions are not 'backward' compatible?
