I tried to run a corporate client on centos the following error occured

[root@localhost crclient]# ./crclient -u xxx
-bash: ./crclient: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

Problem :

This error occured due to excuting a 32 bit application which does not find the library /lib/ld-linux.so.2.

This is because the 64-bit operating system have excluded the 32-bit packages during installaion process, when try to excute the third party binaries you get above error.

Solution :

Install glibc.i686 using yum.

[root@localhost centos6]# yum install glibc.i686

Today I tried to install fonts for GNome desktop and unable to install due yum lock in my server that is load with centos

Error :

[root@localhost ~]# yum install xorg-x11-font*
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security
Existing lock /var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running as pid 2600.
Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit…
The other application is: yum
Memory : 21 M RSS (1.2 GB VSZ)
Started: Mon Oct 14 12:19:29 2013 – 08:47 ago
State : Sleeping, pid: 2600

First i attempt to kill the process

# kill -9 2600

the process could not be stopped

Second i attempt to kill all yum process

# killall -9 yum

still the process could not be stopped

then i shutdown my server and switched on again and still the same result.

finally i remove the yum.pid 2600

after this yum started working fine.

Final solution if you fail to stop the process :

#rm -f /var/run/yum.pid 2600


then update your yum

# yum -y update


Make sure that yum-updatesd is started :

#/etc/init.d/yum-updatesd status

# /etc/init.d/yum-updatesd start
