Some google apps either aren't ready for prime time wrt 64 computing or require multi-lib installs.

You may want to start searching there and see if there are any issues, depending upon what architecture you're hardware platform and OS are - meaning that, you might need 32bit and 64 bit libraries in /usr/lib and /usr/lib64, or....

perhaps when you didn't actually download this application using something akin to:

# apt-get install -y gtalk
or use sudu to do that, since I see you're running sudolinux

You can't just download and wynd0z3 executable and run it natively on UNIX.

I hope that helps

Kindest regards,
