Bug appears at this link:


Try adding pkgs.libstdcxx5 to your replit.nix file. If that does not work I found a related post on the nixos forums: What package provides - Help - NixOS Discourse

Hey @feng54 welcome to the forums!

Thank you for your post and sorry that you are experiencing issues. However the Replit support team may not be able to help you with this issue if you do not complete the template fields fully.

Without knowing the expected behavior (screenshots are fine for this section) as well as the link to your Repl and the steps a member of the support team will need to follow to reproduce the error there won’t be much we can do to help you.

The more information you provide at the start, the easier it will be to identify if your bug report is an issue or a misunderstanding.
