Description of problem:
OS: RHEL AS,WS,ES 3 Update 3 - IPF

On above version of EL we found a problem with stdc++ library link 
not being present. The c++ library libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2 is not 
present on the system. Thus any binary linked to this will fail to 
run. Application linked to this library gives the message:

libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such 
file or directory

But the strange thing is 'rpm -q --whatprovides libstdc++-libc6.1-
shows that the library is present on the system in 
compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.128 package.

#rpm -q --whatprovides libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2

Yes, the library libstdc++-2-libc6.1-1-2.9.0.so exists with the above 
package but the link to the libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2 is not present 
which it should be. I believe this is a problem with installation 

When I searched the dtabse I found a bug number 111716 which is 
reported on the base release, I guess. This bug has an answer saying 
it is resolved in update 2. But the update 3 this problem still 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Run ls command under /emul/ia32-linux/usr/lib/ for the above library.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd /emul/ia32-linux/usr/lib/
2. ls libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2
Actual results:

Expected results:
Link should be present as the actual librtary is different.

Are you sure you have glibc-2.3.2-95.27 or later installed?
The link should be created by ldconfig, which since -95.27 should
walk through /emu/ia32-linux/usr/lib and other directories.
Comment 2 Sreedharamurthy K 2004-10-21 01:28:37 EDT
We have the update 3 CDs for RHEL 3. When we installed we have glibc-
2.3.2-95.24 (got from the rpm query).

Then, why is this package not included in the Update 3 CDs? i.e., ISO 
image of Update 3 does not contain the newer glibc you have 
mentioned. We cannot ask customers to download this separately and 
install on their system. Or how can a subscriber get this package?
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-21 04:53:30 EDT
AFAIK RHEL3 U3 comes with glibc-2.3.3-95.27.
2.3.2-95.24 could be RHEL3 U3 beta, but certainly not U3 final CD.

If you have this problem with RHEL3 U3 glibc, please reopen.
