error when trying to run a program

I just installed colinux, just to play with it.  I have a program now that was written by a friend, but I cannot get it to execute.  I get the error:

./proxy: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Someone sugested it was because the program was made with a different version of g++.

Anyhow, I know next to nothing about linux so far, so bare that in mind when replying.

That's true. You need libstdc++ from gcc version 3.4.x or 4.0.x

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts


I figured it out now.

apt-get install libstdc++6-dev fixed my problem =)


shame u can't accept ur own answers ;-)
