Problems with libstdc++-v3 on Gentoo

I didn’t do any digital photo work for some time with Bibble Pro, however recently I wanted to do something and was greeted with a “Segmentation Fault”. Bibble is a 32bit application, that I’m running on 64bit Gentoo Linux. This is what I got:

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/bibblelabs/bibblepro/libs bibblepro
bibblepro: /usr/lib32/libstdc++.so.5: no version information available (required by bibblepro)
bibblepro: /usr/lib32/libstdc++.so.5: no version information available (required by bibblepro)
AppPath: /usr/bin
SysHome: /usr/lib/bibblelabs/bibblepro/
Userhome set to /root/.bibble

Late init

Speicherzugriffsfehler (Segmentations Fault)

Apparently it has something to with the libstdc++.so.5 (libstdc++.so.5.0.7). Checking the compilation date of the binary package showed, that it was recompiled around the middle of February 2009. With that recompilation something must have gone wrong (newer compiler or whatever). Once I replaced the libstdc++.so.5.0.7 with a version compiled on a native 32bit Gentoo system, Bibble was working just fine again.

BTW, I noticed that there is now a public preview version of Bibble 5. This version is in the making for quite some time now. Bibble 4 is really getting long in the tooth. I hope, they can release something sometime soon.

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
