This will probably fall under the "bonehead" category, but I'm stumped.
I've downloaded the tar.gz of Firefox 22.214.171.124, uncompressed it, and tried to load the installer by typing "./firefox" from within the new directory. I was rewarded with the following message:
./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.
OK, it would appear that I'm missing a vital file. Can someone please tell me how to fix this? Given that Firefox 1.0.8 runs like silk on my system, I assumed that all of the necessary libraries were in place.
I'm using Fedora Core 4 if it makes any difference, and I was attempting the install as root. However, doing it as a user got the same result. I figure the solution is staring me right in the face, but it may be so obvious that I can't see it. Please advise.
Thanks in advance,
