Startup problem (Linux)

Post by John »

Hi all.

Starting XnView (first time install) on Linux 2.6.11, libc 2.3.3, gives the following error:

xnview: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: no version information available (required by xnview)
** XnView v1.70 Copyright 1991-2005 Pierre-E Gougelet (Sep 6 2005/15:28:24) **
Version for Linux x86/Motif (All rights reserved)
** This is freeware software (for non commercial use)

Type xnview -help, for more information
xnview: relocation error: xnview: symbol __strncpy_chk, version GLIBC_2.3.4 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference


Looking up the error on the 'net, gives references to ominous problems. What's wrong here? Does it _have_ to be 2.3.4?

Thanks,
John

Yes. Either you need glibc 2.3.4 or you need the XnView binary that was compiled on a RedHat 6 system:

Your libraries are too old for the Fedora Core 4 binary!
