From forum:

GCC broke ABI of C++ standard library for std::string and std::list. This is perhaps the only known case when they did so, and they had to do so to adhere to new C++11 standard. While breaking ABI by default, they allowed to return back to the old ABI if wanted (in exchange for not being C++11-compliant).

TDM 2.06 binaries were compiled with C++11 with the new C++11 ABI. If you have old version of C++ standard library (it is something like glibc or glibcxx or libstdc++), then you cannot run these binaries. The only way to run the new binary is to get newer version of C++ standard libs somehow and make sure TDM uses them.

Alternative solution is to rebuild TDM from source code. In order to build with old C++ ABI on new Linux, you have to add the following line:
into SConstruct file at source code root directory, and then build according to wiki instructions. The resulting binary would be compatible with old C++ libraries, so you will be able to run it. If you have old GCC/Linux, then even this define is not necessary.

Reverted to old ABI in svn rev 7675.

Now no matter where you build TDM, the GCC-produced binaries should run both on old and new OS-es.
