The ELF executable provided from the main download page is 32-bit. It doesn't run on 64-bit systems without adding support for ELF32. Since 64 bit support is now available in 2.06, this needs updating. While the documentation on the download page is accurate in removing the instructions for adding 32 bit architecture support, which should now be unnecessary, the binary download needs updating too.
I get the error: "no such file or directory" on Debian Stretch GNU/Linux, on a bash shell. This is perhaps because it requires loading some dynamically linked 32 bit libraries unavailable on my system, or perhaps even the 32bit loader itself is missing.
Here is the list of shared libraries it needs to load acquired from 'ldd' application.
linux-gate.so.1 (0xf777a000) librt.so.1 => /lib32/librt.so.1 (0xf774e000) libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib32/libstdc++.so.6 (0xf765c000) libm.so.6 => /lib32/libm.so.6 (0xf7616000) libgcc_s.so.1 => /usr/lib32/libgcc_s.so.1 (0xf75f9000) libpthread.so.0 => /lib32/libpthread.so.0 (0xf75dd000) libc.so.6 => /lib32/libc.so.6 (0xf742f000) /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xf777b000)
Here is a dump from the binary header using readelf application.
ELF Header: Magic: 7f 45 4c 46 01 01 01 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 Class: ELF32 Data: 2's complement, little endian Version: 1 (current) OS/ABI: UNIX - GNU ABI Version: 0 Type: EXEC (Executable file) Machine: Intel 80386 Version: 0x1 Entry point address: 0x804f519 Start of program headers: 52 (bytes into file) Start of section headers: 1690508 (bytes into file) Flags: 0x0 Size of this header: 52 (bytes) Size of program headers: 32 (bytes) Number of program headers: 9 Size of section headers: 40 (bytes) Number of section headers: 33 Section header string table index: 30
The class is ELF32 & Machine 80386.
One solution is to provide a separate 64 bit updater, or to statically link the libraries (Which would allow only one executable for both architectures).
Is there a 64 bit version of the installer?
