I need to install compat-libstdc++-33.i686 on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.5 (Santiago) without a Red Hat Network Subscription. Is there some where that I can download the required .rpm that suits this RHEL version?

Update for RHEL 7 people:

I needed the same item for el7, which in RHEL world, it means adding the "optional RPMs" to your YUM repolist.

    $ yum-config-manager --enable rhel-7-server-optional-rpms

yum should be able to find and install the compat rpm now...

    $ yum install compat-libstdc++-33

    For RHEL 7 on Azure, that's "yum-config-manager --enable rhui-rhel-7-server-rhui-optional-rpms" (repo names are in /etc/yum.repos.d/rh-cloud.repo). Commented Jul 14, 2020 at 0:57

The RHEL 5 package compat-libstdc++-33 : You can get free packages from "Redhat CentOS" → → http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.7/os/i386/Packages/ . The updates are here → http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.7/updates/i386/Packages/

compat-libstdc++-33 : http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.7/os/i386/Packages/compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-69.el6.i686.rpm

Download the package, and ....

1) $ cd Downloads/
2) # yum install compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-69.el6.i686.rpm

You can also migrate to CentOS ( get the CentOS repo files, etc.) → https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/MigrationGuide
