I have a server CentOS 6.9 with interworx and I can't install libstdc++-static.
When I do sudo yum install -y libstdc++-static

returns with:

No package libstdc++-static available.

How can I install this package without breaking anything?

For Centos 6.9 you need to install libstdc++-devel package:

$ rpm -qpl libstdc++-devel-4.4.7-18.el6.x86_64.rpm | grep .a$
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.4.4/libstdc++.a # (statically linked library)
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.4.4/libsupc++.a # (statically linked library)
  • With sudo yum install -y libstdc++-devel I get Package libstdc++-devel-4.4.7-18.el6_9.2.x86_64 already installed and latest version Nothing to do

  • You have installed static libraries. Are you sure that problem in libstdc++-static? May 17, 2018 at 13:26
  • Sorry for my ignorance, I was trying to compile some program and got cc1plus: error: unrecognized command line option "-std=c++11" my gcc version is 4.4.7

  • Support of c++11 begins from gcc-4.7. More info in stackoverflow.com/a/23523710/4688800. You can redefine build flag during configure step and set -std=gnu++0x or install(build) new gcc version instead. May 17, 2018 at 14:11

    Especially for this cases I recommend to you use Docker. Please see in this destination. It may decrease headache during build this application. Hope it's will be helpful for you. May 17, 2018 at 14:47
