Mathematica 6.0 not running in Fedora 7?


Dear Mathematica friends

after installing Mathematica 6.0 in Fedora 7 (x86_64bit)
I get the following error message when trying to run it:

[root@localhost mma]# math
/usr/local/Wolfram/Mathematica/6.0/SystemFiles/Kernel/Binaries/Linux-x86-64/MathKernel: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

but I have
/usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6 -> libstdc++.so.6.0.8
/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 -> libstdc++.so.6.0.8

Is it safe to make a symlink form libstdc++.so.6 to libstdc++.so.5?

Any help appreciated.
