HELP INSTALLING THUNDERBIRD IN RHEL 5.0
« on: January 06, 2009, 01:50:33 PM »
Hello ,

I am facing this problem while I try to untar and configure the thunderbird mail client.

I downloaded the gzip tar file of thunderbird.

Untarred the package using # tar -zxvf thunderbird....

then changed the directory # cd thunderbird
                                          #./thunderbird


and i get the following error
./thunderbird-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
  tried #rpm -qa | grep libstdc++

and I get an output saying libstdc++2.6.... but still I am unable to work with thunderbird please help me.

install  ftp://ftp.rediris.es/volumes/vol1/centos.org/5.2/os/i386/CentOS/compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61.i386.rpm


or  just     yum install compat-libstdc++

Thanks a lot. Mu thunderbird is working now. But i have one more problem. To initialize thunderbird i have to go to terminal then the path of thundrbird and then write ./thunderbird.
Is it possible to start in a shortcut way

yes   .  cd  /usr/bin

ln -s   /......(directory where u  have  thunderbird)/thunderbird

next time  just  open terminal  and  type thunderbird  and  wil  start   :)
