    For the libstdc++ error, can you post the exact output. I suspect that you need libstdc++5 which should be available via urpmi. Make sure that you have setup the various main, contrib, plf and updates repos for your version of Mandriva using the instructions at easyurpmiHave you tried using Firefox from Mozillas own site?

    Are you using 2008 Spring? I've used 2008 and currently using 2008 Spring Beta1 but I didn't encounter such failures. Try to run Firefox from terminal and see the error messages
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:
