    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).

    Subject: Gnome2 broken?

    Did my usual weekly “apt-get upgrade” yesterday and it broke Gnome2 on Sid. Just hangs at the Gnome start screen. The fix above doesn’t fix it. I noticed that a couple of Gnome files and Evolution were upgraded. Are these problems in some way related to the problem above?

    The link was to -15, but the text said -11. Oh well.
