glibc – /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

glibc – /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

yum install glibc.i686

install this.

You did not mention what the command was that you were trying to run that produced the error message. However, the bottom line problem is that you are trying to run and/or install 32-bit (i686) packages on a 64-bit (x86_64) system which is not a good idea. For example, if you were trying to run the 32-bit version of Perl on a 64-bit system, the result would be something like

perl: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

If you still want to use the rpm command to install the 32-bit versions of glibc and glibc-common on your system, then you need to know that you must install both of the packages at the same time and as a single command because they are dependencies of each other. The command to run in your case would be:

rpm -Uvh glibc-2.12-1.80.el6.i686.rpm glibc-common-2.12-1.80.el6.i686.rpm

glibc – /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

Missing prerequisites. IBM has the solution below:

yum install gtk2.i686
yum install libXtst.i686

If you received the the missing libstdc++ message above, 
install the libstdc++ library: 
yum install compat-libstdc++
