LTC4740-Compatibility libraries are not installed by default in WS edition
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:58 EST
The following has be reported by IBM LTC:
Compatibility libraries are not installed by default in WS edition
Intellistation 2-way, 550Mhz, 1gb ram
RedHat Enterprise Linux v3, WS edition
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 3, take basically the defaults (I added in some dev stuff and
selected KDE as default manager)
2. ls -la /usr/lib/libstdc++*
3. Note that only the one for gcc 3.2.3 is there, the compatibility ones are
Also, the libdb compat library is also not installed by default.
This may or may not be a bug, but I seem to recall in the betas that these did
get installed by default. Maybe I'm mis-remembering. They are present on disc
3, and after installing them I was able to get WebSphere AppServer to run (We
have native embedded products that depend on the older version of C++ and db).
Can you tell me if they are supposed to be installed by default or not? If not,
then We'll need to document it in Websphere AppServer for customers to be able
to correctly install and config.
Additional Information:Glen/Greg - please submit this issue to Red Hat. Thanks.
No, the legacy compatibilty libraries are not intended to be installed by
default. They should only be added to the system by customers as needed for
running applications which may have been built on older releases.
