I've just brought home a shiny new C3000 ... and have been fighting Debian ever since :-(
The first thing I wanted to do was get Thunderbird working ... I installed the jumbo GTK-X11 pack as per http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/jumbo/xqtjumbo.html and things seemed OK ... I installed Gimp and it worked (although editing 5 megapixel images didn't really work very well in the limited 64MB RAM!), xterms worked, Firefox worked, things looked groovy.
Then I installed Thunderbird. And whenever I try to run it, it gives me the error:
/usr/lib/thunderbird-0.6/thunderbird-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory
I'm running the default, stock Sharp ROM. I've tried all sorts of things, from installing versions of libstdc++ from the various OpenZaurus feeds (doing the "ar -x <package>" then re-tar.gz'ing as necessary) to uninstalling and reinstalling all sorts of things to no avail. Except every now and again, it gives me another bizzare error, instead of missing libstdc++.so.5, it complains about a missing libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 (which I've checked does actually exist in /opt/QtPalmtop/lib). Generally this happens when I try to run thunderbird as root (but even THEN not always).
I'm tearing my hair out (and hence adding to the headache)! I've been trawling these forums (and a pile of other websites) for the last 4 hours with no success (on that note, is it just me or does highlighting in this forum break if you have more than 1 search term?). Can anyone shed any light on this? DOES Thunderbird work with the standard ROM?
I've also been trying to get SSL working (to open the possibility of using ompi) but that opens yet another can of worms relating to, for instance, the fact that /lib is read-only (and various dependancies seem to want to write new versions there). Anyone got any hints for that one?
