"No such file or directory" when file exists


I'm having a rather strange problem - I'm trying to run an executable which is viewable using 'ls -l', and whose assembled code can be seen in programmes such as vi, but when I run it it says "zsh: no such file or directory". Here is a transcript of the commands:

Code:
[joshua:/usr/bin]$ ls -l gst-launch
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 9224 2008-11-22 16:13 gst-launch

[joshua:/usr/bin]$ file gst-launch
gst-launch: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

[joshua:/usr/bin]$ ./gst-launch
zsh: no such file or directory: ./gst-launch

[joshua:/usr/bin]$ /usr/bin/gst-launch
zsh: no such file or directory: /usr/bin/gst-launch

[joshua:/usr/bin]$ sudo su
Password:
[root@joshua-desktop:/usr/bin]# /usr/bin/gst-launch
zsh: no such file or directory: /usr/bin/gst-launch
There's been a couple of similar questions on LQ, but only one which seemed to have a vaguely helpful answer was this one. I too am running 64-bit Slackware, so it may well be a similar problem. The poster installs "ld-linux.so.2", which I don't have on my system (I have "ld-linux-x86-64.so.2" installed, though)... However, he gets it from a package using apt, and the source package which contains ld-linux.so.2 seems to be glibc.

So, I guess my questions are as follows:
  • Is ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 in any sense equivalent to ld-linux.so.2?
  • Have other people seen this problem, and do they believe installing ld-linux.so.2 will solve the problem?
  • If so, is installing glibc the right way of going about it?

As always, deepest thanks for any help

You are trying to run a 32-bit executable in a 64 bit system. Do do so you have to install the 32 bit libraries, in short, you have to make your system multilib. The description how do to that can be found on AlienBob's website.

Thank you, I will do but pkgtool says I have "gstreamer-0.10.29-x86_64-1" - does this mean that my gstreamer install is screwed, and I should re-install?

Thank you for your help - I haven't yet got round to setting up multilib, but I will do at some point in the future. I have, however, recompiled gstreamer and it now seems to be working correctly so thread is considered solved
