Hi and welcome to LQ.

YellowDog is for the PPC architecture. The file you are trying to install is for a PC with an Intel x86 architecture.

Missing Dependency: libstdc++.so.5 is needed by package ibm-java2-ppc-jre

so now i'm really lost?

Use the package manager to install libstdc++. It offer a jre as well for all I know. I'd like to go into more detail here but unfortunately I've never used Yellow Dog. Try google for more answers.

The package that provides libstdc++.so.5 should be compat-libstdc++-33. As mentioned above, install it using the package manager e.g.
Code:
#yum install compat-libstdc++-33

tried the above and got this:

[root@dhcp-917-35 joe]# yum install compat-libstdc++-33
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
base [1/2]
adobe-linux-i386 [2/2]
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: compat-libstdc++-33
Nothing to do

i just installed ydl so i'm not sure if i'm missing something??...can you point me in the direction of a basics tutorial?
