Install error - missing dependencies on Oracle linux 5 for Qt 5.2 and 5.0.2

  • I attempted to install Qt 5.2 and encountered errors for missing dependencies. The errors are the same when I attempt to install Qt 5.0.2. Here is a snippet of error messages:

    [root@localhost stuff]# chmod +x
    [root@localhost stuff]# ./
    ./ /usr/lib/ version GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by ./ ./ /usr/lib/ versionGLIBCXX_3.4.11' not found (required by ./
    ./ /usr/lib/ version GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by ./ ./ /lib/ versionGLIBC_2.9' not found (required by ./
    ./ /lib/ version GLIBC_2.10' not found (required by ./ ./ /lib/ versionGLIBC_2.11' not found (required by ./
    ./ /lib/ version `GLIBC_2.7' not found (required by ./
    [root@localhost stuff]#

    here is the output of 'uname -a'
    [root@localhost stuff]# uname -a
    Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.18- #1 SMP Wed Sep 29 15:40:03 EDT 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    [root@localhost stuff]#

    The 'missing library' appears to be available --
    [root@localhost stuff]# ls -hl /usr/lib/libstdc++*
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 256K Jun 4 2007 /usr/lib/
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 31 Apr 5 2010 /usr/lib/ ->
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Apr 5 2010 /usr/lib/ ->
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 716K Jun 5 2007 /usr/lib/
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Apr 15 2010 /usr/lib/ ->
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 915K Feb 16 2010 /usr/lib/
    [root@localhost stuff]#

    Would you please advise on how to correct this?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    That lib is indeed present but not the right version. Looking at the kernel version you seem to use a pretty old linux distribution. So you have basically two choices:

    Build Qt yourself

    Update your distribution

    For point 1, you also have to check that your compiler is recent enough

    As a side note, don't use the root account for development. It's a very bad idea.
