Question libstdc++.so.2.8


I've just replaced a dead Tripplite UPS with a Conext unit that includes serial-port notification capability. The new one uses APC's PowerChute software so obviously it must match APC's standard. Consequently I went to the APC web site and downloaded their SSD Simple Shutdown Driver for Linux (a source tarball).

It configured and compiled okay, but when I start it up, I get this error message:
Code:
ssd: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.2.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
It's correct; I do not have a copy of that older version. I do have libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so in /usr/lib, though. Here are my questions:

Would it be safe to create a symbolic link to the newer version, with the name of the older one, to satisfy the ssd program?

If that's not a good tack, does anyone know where I can get a copy of the 2.8 version to install?

If neither of these is a solution, does anyone know of a replacement daemon I can use? Will powerd work with the APC cable?

I think it's safe. But in case it's not, you can always get a version from ftp.gnu.org, alone or automatically compiled with gcc.

Thanks much! I've been googling for input but haven't found much. I'll try the symlink and see if that works...

Got it working; found a copy of the lib using rpmfind and installed it. The symlink did not work out...

I'm having this same exact issue, and i've installed a few different things that say they contain that library, but i still don't have that library. Can anyone help me out here?
