    libm.so.1


    hey all,

    simple question. im running a remote dedicated server with red hat 9. im using it for games and stuff but im having a problem running the battlefield 2 server. when i screen it or ./start.sh it it gives me an error of a messing file, libm.so.1 (error while loading shared libraries: libm.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory). i was wondering where to get the file. i had an error before this that was missing the libstdc++.so.5, but i found a download of that and installed it. now im looking for this file. any links to places that might have it is welcome

    thanks,

    HI, if I'm correct I already posted on your thread about libstdc++.so.5. Downloading an older library if there is already a more recent version available on your system is a waste of space and is only polluting your system - why don't you simply create a symlink?

    Anyway, you'll be able to solve dependencies here: rpm.pbone.net

    Ok, then it was someone else's. Anyway, I googled for your file, some results, but no downloads apparently...

    Which distro are you running? (Edit: sorry, just saw it's RH9 ). Is Yum available for RH9? If yes, try looking for your file with Yum.

    If yum found some results, can't you browse manually to the repositories they're in, download the rpms, and extract them?
