libstdc++ and plugin woes.

I'm not only have trouble with the flashplayer plugin for Mozilla 1.6, but my java plugin does not work either. Here is the error when I start Mozilla:

LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/local/mozilla/plugins/ [ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory]

So I installed libstdc++ for obvious reasons, but I STILL get the same error when starting Mozilla as any user. Do I need a different version of libstdc++ or something? I even found a program called ''flashfix" that apparently patched to work no matter what, but to no avail. Help is much appreciated.

I had this same problem on my LFS system. What I found out is that flashplayer is compiled to dynamically link against the gcc 2.95 version of the c++ libarary. So what you need is gcc 2.95 compiled with c++ support, and then to make sure the library is in the correct path - incase you want some help with it, check out

Good luck

BlurredWeasel: Good call, except I just used the easy Mandrake way of installing gcc It worked for my flashplayer plugin, but not the java plugin..

LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/java/jre1.3.1_10/plugin/i386/ns600/ [/usr/java/jre1.3.1_10/plugin/i386/ns600/ undefined symbol: __vt_17nsGetServiceByCID]

What does that look like to you guys?
