Installing VIPM 2017 for Linux (libXinerama.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64)

Recommended Posts

Hopefully someone here can point me in the right direction.
Installing VIPM 2017:
LabVIEW 2015 SP1 failed since 2017 is installed.  Says X already has newer version in 2017 so fails on error but the installer eventually, after several of these, says installation successful.  I disagree.
Running vipm results in errors like this...
[root@shawn-michaels VIPM]# ./vipm 
Can't load library /usr/local/lib/liblvrt.so.15.0
libXinerama.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
So then I create softlink to resolve the apparent issue but them I run into 32 vs 64 bit like this...
Can't load library /usr/local/lib/liblvrt.so.15.0
libXinerama.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
and I've tried softlinks to both 32 and 64 bit object files.
I am running CentOS7.4 64 bit bit I do have 32 bit glibc and such installed.
Thank you for your help!
Kindest Regards,

Hi Jim,

THANK YOU!  That link did help!  

Looks like all I needed was to install libXinerama.so.1 WHICH I thought I had already but not for 32 bit!  

Installed, as a result: 

  libXinerama.i686 0:1.1.3-2.1.el7                       nvidia-x11-drv-32bit.x86_64 0:384.111-1.el7.elrepo                      

Dependency Installed:
  libX11.i686 0:1.6.5-1.el7      libXau.i686 0:1.0.8-2.1.el7      libXext.i686 0:1.3.3-3.el7      libxcb.i686 0:1.12-1.el7 

Didn't require the 2015 run-time install since 2017 pro dev is installed. VIPM is happily doing its package cache download stuff as I am typing this! What a lovely sight!!!!

Thank you again!
