Cant install minecraft

Post by sd_iconoclast » 2020/05/13 05:28:56

I just tried to install minecraft using the minecraft.tar.gz file.
I extracted the tar file and executed "./minecraft-launcher".
Here is what I got:

[root@localhost minecraft-launcher]# ./minecraft-launcher
./minecraft-launcher: /lib64/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.20' not found (required by ./minecraft-launcher)
./minecraft-launcher: /lib64/ version `CXXABI_1.3.9' not found (required by ./minecraft-launcher)
./minecraft-launcher: /lib64/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.21' not found (required by ./minecraft-launcher)

What is going wrong?

The program you are trying to run was not built to run on CentOS 7 and needs a newer version of glibc than we supply. You cannot run that copy on CentOS and you cannot update glibc on CentOS to a new enough version to make it work. You either need a different copy of the program, built to run with glibc 2.17 or a newer operating system. It would work on CentOS 8 which does have a new enough glibc.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
