I tried installing AIM using the rpm form their site, However it says i need this library. I can't find it anywhere. libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2

 

I'm using 9.2, and I Know i had AIM installed at one point in 9.1...

 

 

From their website it says this, but I don't even have the 6.1-2.so.3 in my directory either...

 

 

Q: Sometimes when I try and run AIM, AIM crashes. What should I do?

A: When you run AIM, it looks for the library libstdc++-lib6.1-1.so.2. However, the latest Debian version doesn't come with this file by default, it comes with a newer version. You need to softlinking the new file to the old filename though: ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-2.so.3 /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2

 

Any ideas guys?!

It's part of the libstdc++2.10 blala.rpm, on cd 3 (download edition)

 

As root:

 

# urpmi libstdc++2.10

 

Or do a search in the MCC, software installation.

 

Hope this helps.

... forgot: a 'guy' has probably an idea too.  :lol:

Indeed, we have. :afro:

 

 

 

piplo: anna's suggestion is the easiest one, but in case you don't have the 3rd cd you can try http://rpmseek.com/rpm-pl/libstdc%5C%5C2.1...35,36,37,53:1:0

 

rpmseek is a good place (extended seek) to check files dependencies, package requirements, whatever.

 

Good luck.

For posterity: When I tried to install AOL Instant Messenger (aim-1.5.286-1.i386.rpm) on Mandriva 2007.0 (x86_64), rpm complained:

 

[root@shaffer ~]# rpm -iv aim-1.5.286-1.i386.rpm 
error: Failed dependencies:
	libgdk-1.2.so.0 is needed by aim-1.5.286-1.i386

...so I installed libstdc++2.10, libgtk+1.2, and libglib1.2:
