After I remove the /emul entries from ld.so.conf and rerun ldconfig

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.
