Prerequisite Warning: C++ Compatibility Pack

Cause



A standard library file, libstdc++.so.5 is missing. 


Solution



Red Hat Linux
Before running Linux Agent and/or RMAL on RHEL, make sure that the libstdc++.so.5 library has been installed. Currently, the libstdc++.so.5 library is provided by compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-68.x86_64.rpm:
yum install libstdc++.so.5. 

Note : Since the RPM package can change with the OS updates, this document will be kept updated with the Compatability Library RPM to install and instructions on how to update the systems.

 

Debian based Distributions
Before running Linux Agent and/or RMAL on a Debian based distribution, make sure that the libstdc++.so.5 library has been installed.  This can be installed using the following command at the console:
apt-get install libstdc++5
 
Note: Ubuntu is based on Debian.
