I am trying to run the "Secondlife Viewer" for linux. It is a 32 bit app on Fedora25 64bit, and when I try and run it from Terminal it comes back with an error saying --

64-bit Linux detected. Running from /home/me/SecondLife501323027i686 bin/do-not-directly-run-secondlife-bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory * Bad shutdown ($LLRUNERR). *

You are running the Second Life Viewer on a x86_64 platform. The most common problems when launching the Viewer (particularly 'bin/do-not-directly-run-secondlife-bin: not found' and 'error while loading shared libraries') may be solved by installing your Linux distribution's 32-bit compatibility packages. For example, on Ubuntu and other Debian-based Linuxes you might run: $ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk ia32-libs-kde ia32-libs-sdl

I tried running a few suggestions from Earlier posts in this forum but still not working Any ideas please ? thanks in advance

I tried doing as you suggested but sadly I get the same error meesage as above..... I get this when I ran the comand mesa-libGLU-9.0.0-10.fc24.x86_64 : Mesa libGLU library Repo : @System

mesa-libGLU-9.0.0-10.fc24.i686 : Mesa libGLU library Repo : fedora

mesa-libGLU-9.0.0-10.fc24.x86_64 : Mesa libGLU library Repo : fedora

I then tried running it and it crashed out before the interface came up

Did you actually install mesa-libGLU.i686?

I downloaded Second_Life_5_0_1_323027_i686.tar.bz2 just for testing, ran secondlife from the installation works!!! By the way, you mentioned your system is Fedora 25 and you installed mesa-libGLU-9.0.0-10.fc24.i686 !?!?! Another thing, have you tried it in a X session? F25 uses wayland by default, it might be that if missing has been fixed.
