I can't get the CFMX installer to run on Linux 8.0. When I run the installer the terminal window looks like this:

Extracting the JRE from the installer archive...
Unpacking the JRE...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...

Launching installer...

/tmp/install.dir.1243/Linux/resource/jre/bin/i386/native_threads/java: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Does the CFMX installer work with RH8.0, or did I not install something that I should have?

    According to the Macromedia web site:


    The system requirements are:

    Red Hat Linux 6.2 - 7.2
    SuSE Linux 7.2, 7.3
    TurboLinux 8 Server

    Are you using one of these?

      I downloaded RHL 7.2 and everything worked fine, except for a problem with permissions. CFMX will only run if I start it from the Administrator account that I was logged in as when I gnutar-ed it. Not a big deal. Thanks for a great set of articles, very well written and well documented. I'm looking forward to the database article.

        I can understand why that would be true, and actually would ecpect it.

        CFMX is creating a lot of files (logs, caches, Java Class files, Administrator settings, etc).

        I would expect that any other user would not have write and/or execute permissions to many of these files

        That's why the install and port procedures instructed you to setup a separate user to run CFMX.

          Now I'm confused. Are you saying that I need administrator privileges to install and start CFMX, but once started it runs as another user (with fewer privileges)? OK, that makes sense to me too.

            Where did you find 7.2 to download?
