    It always is.

    See if you get the same result.

    cer@Telcontar:~> rpm -q libstdc++44
    libstdc++44-4.4.1_20090817-2.3.4.x86_64

    cer@Telcontar:~> rpm -q glibc
    glibc-2.10.1-10.9.1.x86_64


    That's for 11.2

    Is that the error you got? because that is not the correct file, it is
    "/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6".
    Could be my mistake. The machine ran only in console mode and I had to copy the error message to a nearby windows computer to send the email here copy as in medieval copist, not as in copy&paste. Also, my nerves were pretty much at runlevel -1.

    Yes, this is what I get now:

    [42] /home/myself> rpm -q libstdc++44 glibc
    libstdc++44-4.4.1_20090817-2.3.4.i586
    glibc-2.10.1-10.9.1.i686

    As I explained in a posting that probably crossed yours, the problem arose from pairing libstdc++45;4.5.0_20100604-1.12 with glibc-2.10.1-10.9.1.i686. It's quite surprising that yast allowed me to bring the system in such an ill-defined state, but there were really no warnings when I replaced glibc;2.11.2-2.4 with 2.10; I carefully watched for them, as I expected a lot of dependencies, but then the one to blame is myself: For months, I had mixed 11.2 and 11.3, and on such a mistreated system probably dependencies are no longer to be trusted.

    Yep, narrow and difficult. It is not nice having internet problems on top.
