Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Trying to run an executable, but it's not working for some reason:
test@olds:~/simulation$ ls -lrt x86/bin/console
-rwxr-xr-x 1 test test 373645 2010-02-12 12:27 x86/bin/console
-bash: x86/bin/console: No such file or directory
-bash: ./x86/bin/console: No such file or directory
test@olds:~/simulation$ cd x86/bin
test@olds:~/simulation/x86/bin$ ls -l console
-rwxr-xr-x 1 test test 373645 2010-02-12 12:27 console
-bash: ./console: No such file or directory
When an executable file is compiled for another arch you will get a very different error, about it being unable to run an illegal instruction. So that shouldn't be the problem.
When dynamic libs are missing you see the given error that you are getting, so, assuming that the file is truly there, and it is not a symlink, and that your fs is not corrupt (funny things like this can happen) then this could be the cause. If ldd doesn't work you should check the documentation or compile it yourself in your machine (this way you ensure everything is in place, otherwise it won't compile).
If those are not possibilities you can always try strace or gdb, they will surely succeed where ldd failed, though they are a bit more complicated to handle.
