13.2 FPGA Editor - error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5


When trying to run FPGA Editor on a RHEL 5 computer I receive the following error:

/opt/xilinx/13.2/ISE_DS/ISE/bin/lin64/_fpga_editor: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

This library is not native to the RHEL 5 operating system and is not delivered with the ISE Design Suite installation. 

How can I get this library and work around this error?


If your OS does not already have the libstdc++.so.5 library installed, you get it by installing the Compat-libstdc++ RPM from your OS vendor. 

This will resolve the issue with the missing library.
