    I'm having one issue with the ColdFusion 7.x Installation on Debian tutorial. I cannot register any cfx/C++ tags, and I'm pretty sure it's related to the installation step warning that it cannot find: compat-libstdc++

    I did install libstdc++6 libstdc++5 libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2 as per the instructions, but I think we still need to install the compat(ibility) libtdc++ file for Debian.

    Has anyone else encountered this issue?

    Thanks for reading,

    I'm using coldfusion on my Debian Sarge server, and I have the same problem.. I've installed about every needed file on a test server (also running Debian), and never managed to get the register any cfx/C++ tags to work.

    As I'm not really in need (for now) to run any cfx/C++ tags I gave up on trying...

    I DID manage to get it to work on a Fedora RC4 system.

    Okay, I've done some more testing and I have got it to work on Debain and my Coldfusion MX7.02 server :)

    compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm is all extra that is needed.

    To install this library on Debian: download the rpm, convert it to a debian package and install.

    Use alien to convert the package.

    Install alien: apt-get install alien

    Download the compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm file: wget

    convert the .rpm: alien compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm

    install the .deb file: dpkg -i compat-libstdc++_7.3-3.96_i386.deb

    With a bit of luck (it does work on my VMware system) you are now able to register C++ CFX tags with Coldfusion MX7

    Well, that did allow me to register an extension (a simple

    Did you have any luck past that? The ColdFusion application server crashes/restarts when I try to call this cfx tag in a script. I think I'll try this with another distro that's closer to the oficial support list and see what happens.

    Thanks for spending some time on this w/me.
