Description of problem:
We need the /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2 library to build our Java GUI.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Veritas requests inclusion of this library in Red Hat 4. We support customers
running older versions of Red Hat who find it a hardship to quickly update
versions of NetBackup across their entire enterprise. If this cannot be added
to RH4, we would appreciate comments on alternatives such as creating a link
with this libary to the newer one. For several reasons, we don't believe we
can package this file with NetBackup. We are aware of a compatability package
that provides support from 2.1 to 3.0. What compatability package will this
file be contained in? Might we be able to direct a customer to a package that
has this file for 4.0?
Reassigning so the right person will see this.
(libsigc++ is unrelated to libstdc++)
This should be in drops after beta 1. Please retest with the latest release

The first library has:

Note that this library is already 5 years old and very unlikely to appear
in future RHEL releases.
I understand that this is an old libarary. The response I got from Rob Kenna
is that this would be in Red Hat 4 in drops after beta 1. VERITAS supports
customers running older versions of Red Hat, and that is why we are making
this request. For us, we plan to drop support of these older versions, so if
Red Hat 4 is the last release that has this library, we are OK.
Jakub, I'm going to interpret your message to mean that you want us to get off
this library in the future but that it will be in Red Hat 4 as Rob Kenna
writes. If this is incorrect information, please let me know.
Yeah, the above listed packages is included in RHEL4. And we'd really appreciate
if RHEL4 could be the last version to include this library.
