Hmm, when I try to hard-link ("ln /usr/compat/linux/lib/libc.so.6 libc.so.6"), I get "ln: ./libc.so.6: Cross-device link". But, when I do a symlink, which takes, I get "/usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "ld-linux.so.2" not found, required by "libc.so.6"" when i run vmware-config-tools.pl. So, I symlink ld-linux.so.2, and run tools. Then, I get "/usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Undefined symbol "__stdoutp" referenced from COPY relocation in /usr/local/sbin/vmware-checkvm". Arrgh.
