How to run VSD on 64 bit Linux machine


  • VSD - Visual Statistics Display
  • 64-bit Linux


VSD gives the following errors on your console and fails to start when trying to run on a 64-bit Linux system:

vsd: /path/to/vFabric_GemFire_70xx_bxxxxx/tools/vsd/bin/vsdwishLinux: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory vsd: line 3:
/path/to/vFabric_GemFire_70xx_bxxxxx/tools/vsd/bin/vsdwishLinux: Success

vsdwishLinux: error while loading shared libraries: libX11.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


VSD is a 32-bit X11 application, so you will need to install the related (32-bit) libraries to run on 64-bit Linux.


 If you are RHEL users, you can use yum to install required libraries like the following.

# yum install ld-linux.so.2
# yum install libX11.so.6

After installing those libraries, VSD should run normally.
