Installation failed, no C++ equivalent installed
Hey there, I am a MandrakeLinux user (this is the best forum fitted for this problem i suppose)
There are a lot of programs that i have tried to compile that return the following error:
configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
i researched this problem, and did a little digging around and found i didnt have g++. i had gcc, but not the c++ compiler. therefore i downloaded the needed rpm (gcc2.96-c++-2.96-0.83mdk.i586.rpm) and ran it. i came across an error i have come across many times:
Some package requested cannot be installed:
gcc2.96-c++-2.96-0.83mdk.i586 (due to unsatisfied libstdc++2.10[== 2.96])
i want to figure out how to satisfy libstdc++2.10, in order to get g++ installed. I have been looking all over and can't find anything that will help.
I am running MandrakeLinux.
thank you very much
 i tried installing libstdc++2.10-2.96-0.83mdk.i586.rpm, and now its complaining that that verions of libstdc++ isnt working in the same way, so what version do i have to get to satisfy it?
