    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

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

    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?

    Is there any workaround? Or do I have to use kde for a while…

    Install an older version of bonobo-activation. The following files worked for me.


    Let me know if you need copy.

    I looked for and installed:

    bonobo-activation_0.9.6-1_i386.deb libbonobo-activation4_0.9.6-1_i386.deb

    They were available off the debian mirrors under testing. I can now login but dselect complains about needing newer versions of these packages for other packages. However, most things still seem to work fine.

    Thanks for posting this fix!

    To fix the dependency errors, get:

    libbonoboui2-0 2.0.3-1
    libbonoboui2-common 2.0.3-1
