Aha. So ignore my previous post. This file above is part of the libc6
package. It *should* be somewhere on your system (your Debian is a
64 bit system, isn't it? What does "uname -a" say?)

Try "ldd" on some working binary on your debian box, so you can see
what ld.so it is using, like so:

  ldd /bin/ls

For good measure do also

  file /bin/ls

to make sure that it actually is a 64 bit executable. My hunch is
that your Debian has its 64 bit libraries still in /lib and not,
as it does these days in /lib64.

A possible solution (untested, at least by me!) would be to symlink
/lib to /lib64 (*if* /lib contains 64 bit libraries!) and then run

What do others think?
