Need help installing Blender

Post by makmak »

Hi
I would need help installing Blender on Linux.
I downloaded the package from the blender site into my Home directory and unpacked it as it is recommended in the installation instructions. But when I want to start the program by entering the command ./blender on the command line I get the following message.
[root@localhost blender-2.34-linux-glibc2.2.5-i386]# ./blender
./blender: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[root@localhost blender-2.34-linux-glibc2.2.5-i386]

My operating system is fedora 2.

Thanks
mak

do this command while you are logged in as root:

'yum install libstdc++'

I might solve the problem, I also run FC2 and have no problem, though I have this package installed...

good luck!

Presently my Linux internet connection is not working. Can you point me to the site where I can download this package with Windows?

with a little search I found this:
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/ ... 4.rpm.html

good luck...

Thanks for the links. I downloaded and installed the file. All went smoothly, but I still get the same error message.
[root@localhost blender-2.34-linux-glibc2.2.5-i386]# ./blender
./blender: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

try installing this rpm: http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/ ... 6.rpm.html

the link ztonzy posted points to the rpm for 64bit amd cpus.

OK, I downloaded the suggested file; the installation went without a glitch but the same error message still persists.
[root@localhost blender-2.34-linux-glibc2.2.5-i386]# ./blender
./blender: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[root@localhost blender-2.34-linux-glibc2.2.5-i386]#
I wonder, is it possible that something wrong with the Blender program? I am asking this because it doesn’t seem anything wrong with Fedora, it works fine and I have never experienced any installation problems before.

Hi Makmak... looks like you're in the same boat as me ( Linux newbie ) !!! :wink:

You've done everything right so far, but there's more...

Install any dependency Blender complains about ( like libstdc++ ), then create a link ( Windows equivelent of a Shortcut ) to it - renaming the link to be the exact name of the file Blender's looking for ( like libstdc++******.so.3 ).

I think there's only about 3 dependencies... libstdc++, libSDL and libsound, which should be taken care of if you install the Development and Kernel packages within Fedora - Via Add/Remove Programs.

Failing that, you could try an RPM search engine like http://rpm.pbone.net or http://rpmfind.net - As the other guys mentioned.

After you've done the above you may get a wierd 'Symbol' error, which is the stage I'm at - And haven't figured-out how to fix it !!! :(

I'll be interested to hear if you get yours working though - Thanks.

Of course installing the files ztonzy and I suggested doesn't help, because they don't contain the file blender is looking for. This one does:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/ ... 6.rpm.html

Hi sgefant,
thanks a lot for this link. I downloaded and installed the file you suggested and Blender started right away. Panther, don’t bother with those complicated procedures just download the file sgefant recommended, install it and you are done.
After installing Blender I encountered with two glitches though.
After starting Blender, when I click on the New in the File menu Blender asking me Erase all, I say ok and then I get the following error message “Error: File .Blanguages not found.” Do you have any idea what this means and how to fix this?
I also cannot make yafray working. I downloaded rafray rpm and installed it. Everything went fine. But when I change from the Blender internal renderer to yafray trying to render the image nothing happens. The renderer window pops up but stays blank.
