Error on KDE startup

I am installing Arch for the first time.
Successfully installed base packages from 0.6Widget, xorg (config file from hwd) and kdebase.
X server starts and works fine but can´t start kde.
Just added exec startkde to .xinitrc and startx generates:

kde-config: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
xset: bad font path element (#96), posible causes are:
  Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
  Directory missing fonts.dir
  Incorrect font server address or syntax
startkde: Starting up...
kreadconfig: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

.........

Found installed libstdc++.so.5
How can I upgrade to libstdc++.so.6?

Thanks in advance

Re: Error on KDE startup

Did you do #pacman -Syu ?
That will upgrade every package on your system.  That might take care of it.

Re: Error on KDE startup

Hi becho4.

The normal installation incantation for KDE is:

pacman -S kde

(assuming that you've already done 'pacman -Sy').

This will install a large number of files (~15) and is a hefty download (almost 200Mb).

I don't believe that you have enough of KDE by installing just kdebase.

Regards,

Win

Re: Error on KDE startup

Re: Error on KDE startup

My fault was not to run pacman -Syu to update the system.
Installing only kdebase works fine.

Sorry for the newbie kind of question
Many thanks to all
