On an x86_64 computer running Ubuntu 22.04 (and, I think, earlier releases too) the version of
libstdc++.so.6.0.30. Julia, even when compiled from sources, provides
./usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.29. The result is that operations like pre-compiling the
GLMakie package fail with obscure error messages. Also certain R or Python packages that incorporate compiled C++ code fail inside of
PyCall, again with error messages that may puzzle new users.
I have used two different fixes, both of which seem a bit hackish. One is brute force - changing the symbolic links in the julia sources
./usr/lib directory for
libstdc++.so.6 to point to the system version,
libstdc++.so.6.0.30, instead of the local version,
libstdc++.so.6.0.29. An alternative, which I saw in Miguel Raz Guzmán Macedo’s JuliaCon workshop on the REPL is to call Julia as
Is there a recommended way of overriding the version of
libstdc++.so that is shipped with Julia?
