Need to get libgcc_s.so.1


Hi all
I have managed to solve my previous problems finally.
What happened was, I had to install Windows (dont worry, had enough space left for it) but while I did that, it made my linux partition inactive, screwed up the MBR and made itself active. It said I could re-activate the other partition if I needed to. Fine

All went well, I went to disk management, to re-activate my linux partitoin. . . it wouldnt do it from there.
Tried using FC4 CD to do an "upgrade" to re-write the bootloader, but since it"didnt install any new packages, bootloader settings remain unchanged".
Well, my trusty Knoppix CD came in handy. Used QParted or whatever its called ,handy little tool, then activated the Linux partition. Hmm it wouldn't boot, because I saved the bootloader to the MBR.
I had no choice (well, I probably did) but re-installed FC4. Now everything works fine. Managed to get SSH access from my windows PC im in right now.

I installed the Call of Duty dedicated server, which required I think an older version of gcc, 3.2 i think it was. Did that, extracted into the /lib folder. I must have deleted something without knowing. The game server runs ok now, but htat was doing it remotely from SSH.

Today, I went downstairs, tried logging on KDE. "error initialising kdeinit" or something. I looked at the more specific error report, it said
/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 not found (needed by /user/lib/libstdc++.so.6)

Sounds easy, just need to get libgcc_s.so.1 thats what google.com is there for, right?

Well, gave it a bash. The amount of rubbish I get

Here is another topic similar http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...oto=nextoldest
Unfortunately, every file is just not there, sometimes I get told that it isnt there anymore.

I tried a search on www.rpmfind.net but it was not very successful.

Am I doing something completely wrong, or am I just out of luck (which I have had lately with linux . . . until now)

I would really appreciate somebody pointing me in the right direction.

Thanks

I hope I havent rambled on for too long there.

libgcc is part of the gcc rpms in your FC4 install CD/DVD.

So there is no chance of obtaining the individual libgcc_s.so.1 file on its own?

I can get the emergency terminal up, is it actually possible to install the gcc rpms from there using a command?

Thanks

If that file is missing, then so are the rest (likely).
I see the issue - you should be able to log into gnome or go to non-graphical interface (run level 3 I think).

You may want to look at mjmwired.net ... and reinstall after this model.

I probably failed to mention in my endless ramblings,

I did manage to log into the KDE desktop.

It was not till I needed to install an older gcc package that it stopped letting me log into KDE.

the site www.mjwired.net looks really good, thanks for that. Its added to my bookmarks

Its actually got there how to install packages, so I shall attempt that from the rescue terminal.
Only when I did not install both desktops do I need them
