Problem using QtCreator with RHEL 6.5

I'm trying to follow the instructions to set up ArcGIS SDK on 32 bit RHEL 6.5 which are given here: I have installed the latest version of QtCreator using the file downloaded from However, when I try to run QtCreator I get the following error:

Failed to load core: /home/user/Qt5.1.1/Tools/QtCreator/lib/qtcreator/plugins/QtProject/ Cannot load library /home/user/Qt5.1.1/Tools/QtCreator/lib/qtcreator/plugins/QtProject/ (/usr/lib/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by /home/user/Qt5.1.1/Tools/QtCreator/lib/qtcreator/plugins/QtProject/../.././

I have searched forums and tried several approaches to fixing this. I have tried updating glibc using the following rpm: glibc-2.12-7.2.src.rpm. I have also tried updating gcc to version 4.7 by installing the Red Hat Developer Toolkit but I still do not have a version of libstdc++ containing GLIBCXX_3.4.15 (the highest version number I have is GLIBCXX_3.4.13).

The next thing I am considering trying is to build QtCreator from source. The problem I have is that this requires private headers from the Qt library (as explained here: so Qt should be configured with the -developer-build option. However I do not want to rebuild the Qt libraries because I want to use the version supplied by ArcGIS.

I'd be grateful if anyone has suggestions as to the best thing to do.

Thank you!
