### Linux and luxconsole

Hi,

Im trying to run luxconsole on some of the machines here (fedora dist I think) but i get this error:

-bash-3.2$luxconsole luxconsole: /lib64/libc.so.6: version GLIBC_2.7' not found (required by luxconsole) luxconsole: /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by luxconsole) > I checked the files in each directory and they do exists, when I use "ls filename-l" they output is something like this: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 2008-03-11 11:54 libstdc++.so.6 -> libstdc++.so.6.0.8 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 2008-03-11 11:00 libc.so.6 -> libc-2.6.so Any idea what is wrong? Im clueless about linux. Many Thanks.

I checked the files in each directory and they do exists, when I use "ls filename-l" they output is something like this:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 2008-03-11 11:54 libstdc++.so.6 -> libstdc++.so.6.0.8
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 2008-03-11 11:00 libc.so.6 -> libc-2.6.so

Any idea what is wrong? Im clueless about linux.

What version of Fedora is this? Note that "libc-2.6.so" is not the same as "GLIBC_2.7" which ldd is complaining about - also libstdc++ is of the wrong version (should be based on GLIBCXX 3.4.9, see the error message).

I've tried luxrender/luxconsole on a lot of fairly recent linux distros without any problems, so I suspect your Fedora distro might be quite old. I suggest you upgrade to a more
recent distro version, see http://fedoraproject.org/ for instructions. If you're not "married" to Redhat style distros, I've had good experiences with http://www.ubuntu.com/ myself.

Yes, the problem is that my dist is too old (fedora 7).
Unfortunatelly I can't update it because I dont have admin rights.
And even worst I can't compile luxconsole because I need to update the boost libraries as the current distribution does not have the ASIO library.

Anyway, many thanks for your help.

If anyone has a compiled Fedore 7 Version please let me know - thanks.

Ps. I'm running lux console in just two i7 machines at the moment and its great - well done!

Hi,

You could build the boost 1.39 library yourself or get the asio files from an older version of lux (however it might not be compatible with boost 1.39 asio).
Regarding building only luxconsole, the CMake configuration file checks for wxWidgets even when not building luxrender. You could comment out the wxWidget stuff in CMakeLists.txt if you don't intend to use it.
