Re: VMWare does not start after update to libc6-i386?

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:

/emul/ia32-linux/lib/ /emul/ia32-linux/usr/lib/ /emul/ia32-linux/usr/X11R6/ /emul/ia32-linux/usr/X11R6/lib/

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.


What libc6 version do you have? ls -lh /lib/ldconfig
