Missing a series of GLIBC (Is it even possible?)

Post by dolly » 2018/01/01 09:56:33

Hello everyone!
I just signed up to the centos forums since only developers and maintainers of CentOS can possibly help me out.

I'm trying to install Foxit Reader, a pdf reader that lets you annotate pdf documents (unlike evince that only allows for viewing). I followed the instructions on their website and extracted the tar.gz bundle in /opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/. When I finally go to launch the application I get:

Code: Select all

[dolly@centos opt]$ sudo FoxitReader 
/opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/FoxitReader: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.14' not found (required by /opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/FoxitReader)
/opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/FoxitReader: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by /opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/FoxitReader)
/opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/FoxitReader: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.17' not found (required by /opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/FoxitReader)
/opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/FoxitReader: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by /opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/lib/libQt5WebKit.so.5)
/opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/FoxitReader: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.15' not found (required by /opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/lib/libgstreamer-0.10.so.0)
/opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/FoxitReader: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.17' not found (required by /opt/foxitsoftware/foxitreader/lib/libgstreamer-0.10.so.0)
[dolly@centos opt]$
Then I did:

Code: Select all

[dolly@centos opt]$ strings /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 | grep GLIB
GLIBCXX_3.4
GLIBCXX_3.4.1
GLIBCXX_3.4.2
GLIBCXX_3.4.3
GLIBCXX_3.4.4
GLIBCXX_3.4.5
GLIBCXX_3.4.6
GLIBCXX_3.4.7
GLIBCXX_3.4.8
GLIBCXX_3.4.9
GLIBCXX_3.4.10
GLIBCXX_3.4.11
GLIBCXX_3.4.12
GLIBCXX_3.4.13
GLIBC_2.0
GLIBC_2.3
GLIBC_2.4
GLIBC_2.1
GLIBC_2.1.3
GLIBC_2.3.2
GLIBC_2.2
GLIBCXX_FORCE_NEW
GLIBCXX_DEBUG_MESSAGE_LENGTH
[dolly@centos opt]$ 
This is what I've got in my CentOS 6:

Code: Select all

[dolly@centos opt]$ rpm -q glibc
glibc-2.12-1.209.el6_9.2.i686
[dolly@centos opt]$ rpm -qa | grep glibc
glibc-2.12-1.209.el6_9.2.i686
glibc-headers-2.12-1.209.el6_9.2.i686
glibc-common-2.12-1.209.el6_9.2.i686
glibc-devel-2.12-1.209.el6_9.2.i686
[dolly@centos opt]$ 
Do you people know where these libraries may have been placed in CentOS 6? May be they're just somewhere I'm not looking...I know other folks faced with this same problem (in regards to other applications they were installing) found the necessary libraries in some other pathfile, created soft links and got their software to work.

Or is it simply that the software they bundled is meant for CentOS 7+ therefore not compatible with CentOS 6?
Alternatively can you suggest a GNOME pdf reader/viewer (not KDE like Okular) that also allows one for highlighting, underscoring pdfs?

That app requires a newer glibc than we ship with CentOS 6 so it will only work with CentOS 7.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!

So no work around?
Any other GNOME desktop pdf reader that also lets you edit the file? (I only have 7.5 GB of free space)

Did you try pdfedit from the nux-repository?

pdfedit seems promising, will read up on it. I now proceed to eliminate the FoxitReader software and its link in the GNOME menu/sub-menu under /usr/share/applications.
Thank you ;)
