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.
I have the same versions and the same links in /lib/ldconfig on my
system and everything works without anything in ld.so.conf. It doesn't
make sense for ldconfig to fail completly on some systems.
Please file a bug report about this with libc6. Maybe the maintainers
have more insight.
This is happening to me, too. Not with VMWare, specifically, but
ldconfig isn't seeing the symlinks in /lib/ldconfig. If I add the
directory lines back to /etc/ld.so.conf it works fine.
Did anybody file a bug? I looked but the list of open bugs for libc6 is
huge. If nobody has filed a bug yet, then I will.
