Whenever i load sheepshaver by clicking on it's icon, it doesn't load. So I decided to run it in the terminal.
I went into /usr/bin where it is installed and typed ./SheepShaver and this is the output:
Code:
./SheepShaver: error in loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Does anyone know whats wrong?
Do I need to download something from the internet? if so, what is it and where do i get it?

thanks

Hello

I think you need to install the C++ library

download it here: http://at.rpmfind.net/opsys/linux/RPM/l ... .so.5.html

Maybe you didn't install the development packages for your distribution?

Did you manage to compile Sheepshaver? If so, then you shouldn't be missing any of the development packages. If they are missing, problem solved, but if not, this is a common problem with this library, as the libstdc++.so.5 library files are installed in /usr/local/lib, but the system will only seach /usr/lib.

You can fix this by creating symbolic links to make the libraries appear in the old folder thus:

ln -s /usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.5 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1

See if this helps.

I should have installed all the development packages. I ticked development in in linux setup programme.

How do I install the RPM that you told me to download?
If I right click it in GNOME and click install, where does it install to?

thanks
stephen

I seem to be getting a bit further with this now. Now it says my libgcc_s.so.1 is missing, even though i created the symbolic link. So i'll try and find that now.
Don't worry about the installing thing that i mentioned in my last post. I just copied the content on the rpm to the correct directory on my hard disk.

You can install the rpm by using:

rpm -ivh gcc-3.2.2-5.src.rpm

I don't know which distribution Dragon Linux is based on, I have shown the rpm for RH 9, so you need to substitute whichever rpm name you are using.

It's probably better to install the rpm rather than just copy the files in case there is anything that the install does that you haven't done.
