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 ---------
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
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.
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.
The system GNU C++ development files.
The standard C++ library, needed for dynamically linked C++ programs.
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.

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?
