rm /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5 ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5.0.7 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5
i have installed it on FC5 and 6 with no probs.
download the package from mozilla.com to the root's desktop- http://www.mozilla.com/products/down...nux&lang=en-US
# cd /usr # mkdir browsers # cd /root/Desktop # cp firefox-2.0.tar.gz /usr/browsers/
then you can delete the .tar.gz firefox file
as root again, run, (if your directory that you extracted the firefox 2 package from is named "firefox", otherwise replace that dir with whatever yours is named)
# chmod 777 /usr/browsers/firefox/firefox # cd /usr/browsers/firefox # ./firefox
uncheck "Ask me this every time", and hit yes.
you should be all set
Just wanted to add me name to mix.
I have the same issue as Guts. I followed anthq's recommendaations and get the "error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" message.

I believe if you "yum install libstdc++" or "you install libstdc++.so.5" it should work... That's how I did it at least, however I don't know if I did the first or second one... well it should be the one you don't get an error on....

I had the same problem, just google the source for that library, download and install it. I don't think you need to do linking because it's not in the wrong place, it's just not there at all. I think the default install will put it in the right directory so you can just go back and try to install firefox again.

Output from ls..libstdc

All Greek to me.
I performed the "yum install libstdc++.so.5" update and ./firefox and FINALLY!!! Firefox 2.0 pops up. One last request before I shower praise on all of you for helping me out. How do I liknk firefox 2 to the launch icon on the top of my screen, the one that starts up Firefox 1.5?
All good. After a restart the icon seemed to have bound itself to the 2.0 version of Firefox.
Thank you all. I appreciate all the help. I can't belive it took me two hours to update Firefox from 1.5 to 2 but I couldn't have done it without all your input.
