When trying to install Java, I get the error that libstdc++.so.6, libc.so.6, libgcc_s.so.1, and libm.so.6 are needed...... :sad:

Also when I went to Sysinfo, to get the program sysinfo, I found these things I needed, and downloaded all of the required things etc....
When I double click on the gtkmm, libsigc++ , glibmm, and libglademm it won't install them. It says "packagename" needed for installation, but the package names are what I'm trying to install.... :4-dontkno

You need to install glibc (for libc.so.6 and libm.so.6), libstdc++ and libgcc.

For the installations I recommend using yum (assuming this is your Fedora box).

As root
Code:
yum install glibc libstdc++ libgcc gtkmm libsigc++ glibmm libglademm

EDIT: Btw, this is a fresh install, should I configure yum?

I don't think you would need to configure yum. Each distribution should have their own servers already in /etc/yum.conf. However, you can add more servers to the list that will be checked.

I checked the sysinfo site and it has the dependencies at the bottom of the download page. You can get all of the packages needed from Fedora extras (there's a link from the sysinfo download page). It says to run 'yum install gtkmm24 libglademm24'.

Thanks shuuhen; I finally installed those programs after mind wrecking playing, but I get an error when trying to install sysinfo.

Code:
$ rpm -ivh sysinfo-0.6.1-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        libexpat.so.1 is needed by sysinfo-0.6.1-2.i386
I can't find it anywhere!!!! And yum install sysinfo won't work :upset:

I think you can get libexpat from the expat package. I got freevo_runtime from a search for libexpat.so.1 on rpmfind.net, so you might want to try that if expat doesn't work.

Thanks for helping shuuhen but, it said (when I tried to run sysinfo) that I was missing a glade package or whatnot..... What really surprises me is that this is my third install of fc3 on this comp, and the first tim it worked perfectly, and I did the latest 2 installs this week...

:sayno: :sayno:

I'll just forget about it :sad:
