Heya guys, weird issue here, im running the AMD64 version of Debian Sid and just did a fresh install of Quake Wars (after installing the OS yesterday, was running the x32 version and Quake Wars previously)
Heres the error when running "./etqw":
"./etqw.x86: error while loading shared libraries: libx86.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
I have the "ia32-libs" and "linx86-1" packages installed (they were already before this install)
Ran a search and libx86.so.1 is in /lib, I don't get whats wrong.
The game has 2 executables though that you can run, "etqw" and the new (as of the most recent patch) "etqw-rthread" which is a multithreadded version that runs much faster on dual/quad core/CPU systems, I diddnt know of that addition till after finding this error, but when trying to run that, it worked flawless.
Now I could just forget about the older executable not working, but it must mean somethings not configured right or something, anyone have any tips or advice? Am I missing a package needed for many 32 bit programs to run properly on the x64 system?
I have the library (its in /lib) but it cant find it.
Was suggested elsewhere to try to edit my /etc/ld.so.conf file and then do ldconfig,but all it had in it was "include /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf"
there is a file in the same directory that is called ld.so.conf.d and it has nothing in it, and ldconfig on its own didn't do anything.
copied the file to the game folder (there were a few libs in there that it must depend on also) and then I got a new error:
./etqw.x86: error while loading shared libraries: libx86.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
Does this mean that the library it needs is the x64 version, and its looking for a x32 one, and I dont have that?
