When trying to run python after booting with the 2005.1 x86 minimal cd it
complains that libstdc++.so.5 is missing.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot with 2005.1 x86 minimal cd
python: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory
I am aware of this, as python is not designed to be usable on the CD.
This seems to be inconsistant as python was available and did work on 2005.0
In fact, based on this, we wrote installation scripts in python which now will
I have no intention on making it work on the InstallCD images, as it is not
required for doing a normal Gentoo installation. The minimal InstallCD is
exactly that. Python being functional in 2005.0 was probably more of an
accident than anything else. If you require a complete and working python
environment, then I would suggest using the LiveCD image instead, as it is
designed for this purpose.
