Question WinRAR GUI Error Message

Hello all. If you're reading this, thank you for your time!

I'm trying to install the GUI version of WinRAR on Fedora 9 64bit but I am getting the following error message:

./RarGUI2.2-fix-Bin.sfx: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I ran the following command hoping that this would install the correct libstdc++ package but it did not: yum install compat-lib*

I also ran this command to get my status for libstdc++ but I don't have it installed:

ls -al /usr/lib/libstdc*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 262024 2008-02-21 18:45 /usr/lib/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 31 2008-08-18 15:48 /usr/lib/ ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 2008-08-15 17:41 /usr/lib/ ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 954544 2008-04-28 11:37 /usr/lib/

I really appreciate your time and assistance!

On Debian the libstdc++5 package has the file you require. I don't know if it's the same under yum, but I'm sure it must have a similar name. You need to search yum for the exact package you need. It appears to be a separate install from libstdc++6.

By the way, I used a tool called apt-file, which allows you to search for which package contains a particular file. Is there something similar for rpms?

Ok. So the question do I search in Yum for the package I need?

[fred@localhost ~]$ yum provides
Loading "protectbase" plugin
Loading "protect-packages" plugin
Loading "priorities" plugin
Loading "skip-broken" plugin
0 packages excluded due to repository protections
compat-libstdc++-33.i386 : Compatibility standard C++ libraries
You know unrar is available from livna and it works as a right click in gnome? Gpar2 (rar repair) is available from the standard repo.

I went ahead and ran that command but this is what I got:

[root@localhost Download]# yum provides
