Description Sriram Natarajan 2007-11-29 05:53:45 EST
Description of problem:

Most of Sun shipped products depends libstdc++-2-libc6.1-1-2.9.0.so library.
Normally, this library is delivered as part of compat-libstdc++ rpm in most of
the linux distributions. Even with RH EL 3 and 4, these libraries were delivered
as part of compat-libstdc++ rpms.  However, with RH EL 5.1, this library is not
delivered as part of compat-libstdc++. Can you please deliver this library as
soon as possible so that our customers can continue to enjoy Sun's products on
RH EL 5.1 platform as well. 

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

Redhat EL 5.1

How reproducible:

rpm -qlp compat-libstdc++*

you will notice that /usr/lib/libstdc++-2-libc6.1-1-2.9.0.so and
/usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2  libraries are missing when compared to RH EL 4

Steps to Reproduce:

[ library is missing within compat-libstdc++ rpm ]
Actual results:

Expected results:

[ Need to provide this library as part of compat-libstdc++-296 rpm. ]

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2007-12-01 10:29:02 EST
The library was intentionally removed, we don't offer eternal compatibility
and this library is from RHL 6.x era.  It can't be built on contemporary distros
easily and preserve its ABI, in RHEL3 and RHEL4 it was just copied over from
RHL6.x and binary patched to make it work at all.
If you have so obsolete products, just convince the vendor to reconsider using
so old libraries or ship them themselves.
