    libstdc++ broken, breaks apt
    Submitted by Netsnipe on Thursday, November 14, 2002 – 05:31
    PackagesBe warned that libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2 (1:2.95.4-14) in unstable breaks C++ support due to a single file being renamed. This totally renders among other things, apt-get and mozilla-based browsers, unusable. A critical bug report has been filed at #169032.

    DanielS: KDE, too. If things are snafu for you, read on, there are two fixes.

    If you’ve already upgraded to 2.95.4-14, two fixes are available (the hack and the real fix):

    • /usr/lib# ln -s libstdc++-3libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so
    • Install libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2 2.95.4-11 manually with dpkg (note: that link is to the i386 deb).

    I thought I was the one who repored this bug. The bug report says:
    Received: (at submit) by bugs.debian.org; 14 Nov 2002 03:58:50 +0000

    I sent a report[1] to the debian-glibc list with the hack fix[2] at:
    Thu, 14 Nov 2002 04:19:45 +0000

    Not even 21 minutes, 20 minutes and 55 seconds 🙂
    I thought I saved debian
    [snip: me dreaming of the debian community all rallying around me
    writing all the GPL software I ask for…]

    [2] my hack fix was better than his, I made a sym-link while he
    copied the file ;p
