Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Attempt to install SeaMonkey in Mandriva Linux Free. 2.Install fails: libstdc++.so.5 (no such file or directory) 3. Actual Results: SeaMonkey did not install. Expected Results: SeaMonkey should have installed, but why is this file missing? The same file will install fine with SUSE Linux. Operating System is Mandriva Linux Free 2006. Same error displayed whether I tried to install as a regular user, or as root. As with SUSE Linux, I want to install this to my home directory.
This required the installation of libstdc++ packages, once installed, the SeaMonkey installer successfully installed the suite.
There was no bug, so there could have been no fix.
Mandriva ships with a newer libstdc++ version. You might check on getting Mandriva to automatically include the mozilla.org build required older libstdc++ version as a compat lib like some other distros do. It annoys me when I forget to add this lib after a fresh Mandriva install and SM won't start.
I installed the libstdc++ packages that came with the CD set. Upon completing the installation of Mandriva, there were not any updates to those packages available. But SeaMonkey is now installing and running fine.
