Trying to get nmap running on Solaris 8
Posted on 2008-10-28
I'm tryig to get nmap to run on Solaris 8. I downloaded the nmap package from sunfreeware.com and installed it. When I try to run nmap it errors out with this:
ld.so.1: nmap: fatal: libstdc++.so.6: open failed: No such file or directory
So then I thought I'd load package libgcc-3.4.6-sol8-sparc-local that nmap recommend but when I did it produced this error so I backed out:
Using </usr/local> as the package base directory.
## Processing package information.
## Processing system information.
3 package pathnames are already properly installed.
## Verifying disk space requirements.
## Checking for conflicts with packages already installed.
The following files are already installed on the system and are being
used by another package:
Do you want to install these conflicting files [y,n,?,q] q
I quit out at this point.
So my question is what should I do next. Should I unload the conflicting package (no sure what it is) and then try loading "libgcc-3.4.6-sol8-sparc-local" ? is there a package update command I should be trying instead?
