yum provides
tells me which package provides the file, but i had installed it already so i don't know if yum installs it automatically.

But anyway, you should install the software itself using yum or apt so they'll automatically install all the needed packages.

I not too good at this but I think the command:

yum provides

will tell you that package libstdc++.i386 has the library you needed. I think then:

yum install libstdc++.i386

might have worked.
