oDeskTeam application for Slackware 13.37++ 64 bit

Hi there,

I used to have a 32 bit slack current but just upgraded recently and started over installing most of the softwares installed on my old machine.

Been using Arch Linux package for oDesk Team 32 bit (the latest non-beta) and it works with few symlink tricks. (I already forgot the library it used).

Doing the same thing on my 13.37 64 bit machine (haven't gone full current yet), it installs the package but the bin does not execute.

lysender@darkstar:~$ /usr/bin/odeskteam-qt4
bash: /usr/bin/odeskteam-qt4: No such file or directory
lysender@darkstar:~$ file /usr/bin/odeskteam-qt4
/usr/bin/odeskteam-qt4: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
lysender@darkstar:~$ uname -a
Linux darkstar #3 SMP Sat Apr 9 22:49:32 CDT 2011 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2350M CPU @ 2.30GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

running proprietary binaries is always a pain, that should encourage everybody not to use them: I just tried unpacking the ubuntu_11.04 package (not the 12.04 one) with "ar x" and then "tar xf data.tar.gz" on my slackware64-current and it runs fine.

What shows
readelf -l /usr/bin/odeskteam-qt4
It should be something like that:
  INTERP         0x0000000000000200 0x0000000000400200 0x0000000000400200
                 0x000000000000001c 0x000000000000001c  R      1
      [Requesting program interpreter: /lib64/]
Do you have file listed as interpreter?

That is for using the Arch package.

Solved the problem by creating several symlinks as follows:

1. /lib/ -> /lib64/
