Since I updated my Etch AMD64 from with ia32-libs to libc6-i386 I cannot

have to try to reinstall ia32-libs?
If I should reinstall ia32-libs, how can I do that: I get all sorts of
dependency errors that I cannot solve? Should I first completely
un-install libc6-i386 and than try to reinstall ia32-libs?
Install it from sid.
Any problems left?
I had some problems too. I _really_ don't know for sure what I did,
but I fiddled around with hal, and suddenly it worked again.
I had the same problem with VMware, but I seem to have found a fix.
On my system, the libraries are there under /emul/ia32-linux/ but VMware
didn't seem to find them. What I did that appears to fix the problem
was to add the /emul/ia32-linux/ directories to my /etc/ld.so.conf file
and re-run ldconfig as root. This is what I added in my ld.so.conf file:
I'm not sure if all of that is needed, but the last line definitely was.
Then I re-ran ldconfig and VMware would start. We'll have to see if
it keeps working =)
Hope this helps.
