Problem with mozilla plugins


I get this same message for every single plugin I install in the /opt/mozilla/lib/mozilla-1.5/plugins directory. It's the right directory because I can rename the null plugin and it won't find it. Flash, Java, any plugin I load gives me that error (except the name of the plugin varies) from the command line and it won't load plugins. What's up with this?

Code:
[underdog@chandler] [~] mozilla
LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /opt/mozilla/lib/mozilla-1.5/plugins/libflashplayer.so
 [libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory]

I'm not 100% sure but I think you have to symlink the plugins directory in /usr/local/mozilla to the plugins directory in your home folder.

There is no /usr/local/mozilla. /opt/mozilla is *the* mozilla directory on my system. The problem isn't the plugins directory. It's something else. I've been doting over it for a few weeks.

I don't know if this is the problem, but you might want to locate the directory libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 is in (probably /usr/lib, but as root you could do
find / -name "libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3"
in case it's someplace odd). When you determine the directory, make sure it's listed in /etc/ld.so.conf . If not, add it, then as root run
ldconfig

Actually, even if it's listed wouldn't hurt to run ldconfig just in case. It does look like it might be a shared library problem.

if you have it and it is in an odd directory, i would suggest trying to make a symlink to the actual file and seeing if that works.

well if you're using an rpm friendly distro, you could try some of these links:

http://www.google.com/search?q=libst...8&start=0&sa=N

not only do you need libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3, but i think you may need also the compat-gcc-c++ library also.

I'm not using an RPM distro. I wouldn't touch one with a ten foot pole. Arch uses a Slackware like tar.gz package format. I'll just go find those on a website somewhere if I can.
