firefox installation problem


Hi all,

I had to reinstall Mandrake 10.1 Community and now as a result cannot install firefox...here is the message:

error while loading shared libraries libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory

does it ring a bell to anyone?

I have not installed any other software to troubleshoot properly but...I could if you need me to!

Thanks again!

libstdc++.so.5 comes with gcc-3.3.x - You probably have gcc-3.4.x installed which comes with libstdc++.so.6 or have no gcc installed at all. If you have gcc-3.4 installed you will have to compile firefox from source. NOTE: if you downgrade gcc-3.4 to gcc-3.3 everything else that depends on libstdc++.so.5 will break. let me know if you need a .mozconfig file (the file that builds mozilla/firefox).
