Running 32bit Geekbench on 64bit Ubuntu 12.04 machine


I'm trying to run the 32bit binary of GeekBench on my 64bit ubuntu 12.04 machine.
I'm getting some issues with 32bit compatibity though:

./geekbench_x86_32: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
ldd geekbench_x86_32 =>  (0xf773a000) => /lib32/ (0xf770d000) => /lib32/ (0xf7704000) => not found => /lib32/ (0xf76d9000) => not found => /lib32/ (0xf7536000)
	/lib/ (0xf773b000)
uname -a
Linux ubuntu 3.2.0-23-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP Tue Apr 10 20:39:51 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
dpkg -l | grep libgcc
ii  libgcc1                                1:4.6.3-1ubuntu5                        GCC support library

dpkg -l | grep libstd
ii  libstdc++6                             4.6.3-1ubuntu5                          GNU Standard C++ Library v3
Can anyone tell what I need to install?

I was trying to run Geekbench from usb live Ubuntu. You can't install the suggested 32 bit support packages from this environment via apt.
You could probably hack something together, but I think that for most users it will be quicker to just install Ubuntu.

I'm glad I did. My geekbench score went from 5600 (under Windows 7) to 6900 in Ubuntu 12.04! 23% increase! Go Ubuntu/Linux!
