firefox (sorry)


I know there alr alot of posts about firefox, i just cannot find the right answer among any of them.

I just downloaded firefox-0.8-i686-linux-gtk2+xft.tar.gz and unzipped it into firefox/ directory But, when i run ./firefox i get this error:

root@libranet:/home/dejan/firefox# ./firefox
./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


What is that??

Thx!

Do you have libstdc++.so.5? Do a file search. If you have it, then it may be a permissions problem.

Get libstdc++-3.3.2-1 and install it and you will have libstdc++.so.5.

Hi,
Thats easy ..
just get the rpm which installs the binary.
and run

rpm -ivh filename.rpm

To know which rpm to install
if any linux machine has that library
type

rpm -qf path_of_the_installed_library

This returns the rpm u need to install.Then u can get the rpm
from some site like rpmfind and run the first command.
Hope this helps u.

alien will convert it for you. Just bring up a terminal in the directory where you download the rpm to and then type alien -d libstdc++-3.3.2-1.i386.rpm and it will convert it for you.
