Cool Please help me install this


i was about to install google gears , found this info , but dont know to install it properly

What does Gears require to be compatible with my Linux system?
If you'd like to run the Gears for Firefox on a Linux (32-bit) platform, please make sure your system has glibc 2.3.5 or higher and libstdc++6 (Gears 0.3) or libstdc++5 (Gears pre-0.3).

You don't say where you got those notes, but it appears you need to install those libraries (if you don't already have them).

These are the standard GNU c and c++ libraries and should already be installed on your system.

What versions are available with your package manager?

If you cannot get the exact version, you **might** need to setup soft links. Here is a relevant listing from my system:

Code:
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       19 2009-07-23 18:41 libstdc++.so -> libstdc++.so.6.0.12
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       19 2009-07-23 18:41 libstdc++.so.6 -> libstdc++.so.6.0.12
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  1230349 2009-07-23 18:41 libstdc++.so.6.0.12
Note that the actual library is the last file---the other 2 are soft links to that file.
