  1. Install libstdc++.so.5 (Gcc 3.2.3) for Centos5 i686

    Hi,

    I need libstdc++.so.5 (Gcc 3.2.3) for Centos 5, i686.

    I tried searching on libstdc++.so.5 and Centos, but I did not find a
    site from which I can download an RPM
    for this. ( I found some sites that listed the RPMs)

    Unless I missed it, I was unable to download this from Centos's
    Website.

    Any ideas on how to download the appropriate RPM would be highly
    appreciated.



    Thanks,
    DF

    You probably don't need it. Create a link to so.6 and name it so.5.

    That is generally a very bad idea, it can make your programs fail
    horribly. There is generally a good reason (API change) for people to
    use a different major version.

    I think you want the compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3 RPM.[1] If you got your
    yum configured correctly it should just be a `yum install
    compat-libstdc++-33' away.

    I like the idea of 256 bits, though: 32 for the (Unicode) character leaves
    room for 224 Bucky bits, which ought to be enough for anyone.

    I have the following release:
    rpm -q centos-release
    centos-release-5-0.0.el5.centos.2

    But I have an software which needs libstdc++.so.5

    It seemed that I already have libstdc++.so.6
    I could not install (yum finds nothing to do) so.5. I guess because I already have .so.6.

    Do I need to go down a version of centos and how?

    Thanks.
