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

kourosh@kimiko:~$ ls -lh /lib/ldconfig/

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.
