I am trying to install a National Instruments driver on my Linux computer (CentOS/RedHat/SUSE), but everytime I face an error message saying that libstdc++.so.6 dependency is missing :
Pre Installation . 
Post Installation . 
Pre Installation ................................... 
error: Failed dependencies: libstdc++.so.6 is needed by ni-pal-16.0.0.49153-0+f1.i386

Error installing NI-VISA for Linux 16.0.0f0. 

Installer is aborted
What can I do ?

Solution

libstdc++.so.6 is a standard GNU C++ library that can be found through yum command line.

In order to find which package contain libstdc++.so.6, you can enter the following command
>> yum provides libstdc++.so.6
Then, chose one of the suggested packages.

If the package is already installed, then try to reinstall the package through the following command :
>> yum reinstall libstdc++.so.6
