    Default Can someone help me find libstdc++.so.5 ?


    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new to Linux and was hoping someone could help find and install
    libstdc++.so.5 ? I'm attempting to install Db2 9.5 (32 bit linux) and
    apparently the install won't work because my system doesn't have this
    lib file.

    -----partial error below ---------

    ERROR:

    The required library file libstdc++.so.5 is not found on the system.


    Check the following web site for the up-to-date system requirements

    of IBM DB2 9.5

    ---------------

    I tried the following command:

    sudo zypper install compat-libstdc++

    but receive the following error:

    gregorys@linux-oosi:~/Desktop/exp> sudo zypper install
    compat-libstdc++

    Download (curl) error for
    'http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/repo/non-oss/repodata/repomd.xml':

    Error code:

    Error message: Couldn't resolve host 'download.opensuse.org'



    Abort, retry, ignore? [A/r/i]:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm currently running OpenSuse
    11.1 (latest veresion yah....) and my Internet connection appears fine.
    Is the above URL correct ? My guess is no and something has changed
    somewhere. Any steps you can provide to help resolve the problem(s)
    would be awesome.

    Thanks,


    TI-MAN

    Hi
    I would say it may be the mirror your system is attempting to
    connect to, the redirector can have issues. I find it better to
    select a mirror site. It's also on the dvd if you have that.

    You can also use this link to search;
    Get It

    Still no luck.
    I think the packages aren't downloading properly due to my proxy
    settings. I can get the browser working (had to manually configure the
    proxy) fine but the locations the update tool is trying to retreive
    from indicates the URL is bad when in fact it works fine when checking
    through the browser.

    So I tried finding libstdc++.so.5 on the installation CD, but so far
    I'm not having any luck.

    Can you point me specifically to the package that contains
    libstdc++.so.5 (on the CD) ? I've found other packages, but they seem to
    contain older versions.

    I've found:

    libstdc++-devel
    The system GNU C++ development files.

    and ...

    libstdc++33
    The standard C++ library, needed for dynamically linked C++ programs.

    Thanks,
    -

    Hi
    If you search for it, then click on the main link pointing to the
    repository (rather than the rpm itself). Then browse the directory tree
    for your file, off to the right are two links, click on the mirror link
    to see which mirrors have it, then use this to setup your repositories
    to one of the mirrors.

    Else use the metalink and save this, then use aria2c (it's a cli
    tool) to retrieve and install manually.

    I know you are probably going to shoot me, but I did the steps you

    I found a few other libstdc++ ...(appears to be different versions)

    Hi
    Have a look via YaST and software. If you check the box 'rpm provides'
    it shows the file your after is in libstdc++33. It's on the following
    mirrors;

    Mirror
    list for libstdc++33

    Trying to re-install the db2 9.5 here got me to the same point but /usr/lib
    already has a symlink libstdc++.so.5 -> libstdc++.so.5.0.7 which does exist
    so shouldn't the installation program "find" the darned thing? Since this
    is a 32-bit library and I'm working on a 64-bit installation I am leary
    about the end result if it DOES install but am I missing something?

    Hi
    You can always extract (from the rpm) the library and place it over in
    the /usr/local area and re-run ldconfig.
