    Question SDL with g++

    How can I get SDL to work with g++? In gcc it works fine, but when I try to compile something with g++.. well the compile is fine, but at runtime I get the following error message and it exits:

    Code:
    ./images: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5: version `CXXABI_1.2' not found (required by ./images)
    This is my compile line:

    Code:
    g++ -Wall `sdl-config --cflags` -o images images.cpp `sdl-config --libs` -lm
    Also, is there anything specific I need to pass when using ld to link, to get it to work? I haven't really messed with it, but I might.

    that same thing happened to me when I tried to get a program working. I can't remember what program, I think xmms, but just go get that library. libstdc++.so.5 is what you need

    I have it - it's in /usr/lib. Apparently it's not the right version or something?

    I remember what you need. If in gentoo emerge compat-libs if not just go donwload the rpm or deb file or what not. Let me know if that works

    It's already merged, I even emerged it again just in case (was the latest version) and it didn't work .
