ldd to the rescue! Someone did have to remind me about this tool, so I
hope this helps someone out sometime remember about this tool as well.
On machine it doesn't work on, I get this:
billie:~/Linux# ldd ./vxaTool
not a dynamic executable
but on the machine it does work on, I get this:
sarah:~/Linux# ldd ./vxaTool
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xf7fb6000)
libc.so.6 => /lib32/libc.so.6 (0xf7e4e000)
So, I looked to see what package they were from, installed libc6-i386,
and viola, it works!
