What libc6 version do you have? ls -lh /lib/ldconfig
kourosh@kimiko:~$ ls -lh /lib/ldconfig/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 2006-03-23 11:36 emul_ia32-linux_lib ->

Those three replace the entries in ld.so.conf.
Please remove the entries from ld.so.conf and check with ldconfig -v
that it scans all 3 emul directories and finds the 32bit X libs.
It does here but aparently not for others. And I can't figure out what
is going wrong.
After I remove the /emul entries from ld.so.conf and rerun ldconfig -v,
I see that it does _not_ scan the 3 /emul directories and does _not_
find the 32bit X libs and I again get the same error with vmware not
finding the correct libs. At least on my system, the 3 /emul entries
are required for vmware to work. I don't have any other 32bit software
that I can test.
I add back the 3 /emul entries, rerun ldconfig -v, and the 3 /emul
directories are scanner and vmware works again.
