Description of problem:
Several times I have had to manually go back and install packages to meet dependencies, which yum (or
the installer have not fulfilled). Mostly these are compat-lib rpms.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 5
On a clean install, we've run into this problem. With an install of vnc-server it appears to need compat-
libstdc++-296, but it does not resolve and install it.
(This is one of the errors we were getting when trying to run programs. Some others were for packages
needing libstdc-2.96 (or something like that)).
I'm not sure if this is a problem with yum in FC5 or just the dependencies were not defined correctly in
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Did a clean install of FC5
2. Attempted to run various programs
3. The errors would be something similar to:
error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2:
Programs would run
vnc-server doens't require the compat bits, it just uses the stock libstdc++.
Can you provide the output of rpm -qi vnc-server and rpm -V vnc-server?

[minerva/~]->sudo rpm -V vnc-server
My libraries I have installed and the packages which they came __FROM__:
/usr/lib/libstdc++-20060203.so.7.0.0 __FROM__ libstdc++so7-4.2.0-0.3.20060203.2
/usr/lib/libstdc++-2-libc6.1-1-2.9.0.so __FROM__ compat-libstdc++-296-2.96-135
/usr/lib/libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so __FROM__ compat-libstdc++-296-2.96-135
/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5.0.7 __FROM__ compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-55.fc5
/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.8 __FROM__ libstdc++-4.1.0-3
The specific error was asking for libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2. It looks like the 2 'non compat' RPMs provided
6.0.8 and 7.0.0, but not a 6.1 version.
I don't have any compat packages on my workstation and vnc is working fine --
can you run vnc to get the exact error and also then run 'which vnc' to ensure
that you're getting the version from the package and not something from
somewhere else in your path?
From the user:
>On Minerva, the vncviewer command gives the following error:
>vncviewer: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2:
>cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I need to check with the user, which binary they were using.
