When installing Spectrum Report Manager SRM on Red Hat 5.x you get this error. The solution explains how to work around this error.
To successfully install SRM
- Edit the /etc/redhat-release file to change an entry:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2 (Tikanga)
to instead read as:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 5)
- Install the requested compat-libstdc library:
rpm -Uvh --oldpackage compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.3.i386.rpm
- Continue with the installation after this point.
When the installation is done you can go back and modify the content changed in step 1 to the original version.
Note: This is still an unsupported release and if support issues arise we reserve the right to request you to move to a supported version. This procedure may be used in setting up a test enviroment but it is not recommended for use in production systems.
