Ubuntu 11.10: 32-bit applications do not run 64-bit

After upgrading from natty (11.04) to oneiric (11.10), some 32-bit applications don’t run anymore. I have ‘ia32-libs’ and ‘libc6-i386′ packages installed. For example, when I run Android adb,

$ ./adb
bash: ./adb: No such file or directory
$ file adb
adb: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.8, stripped

After googling around, the fix is quite simple: re-install ‘libc6-i386′.

$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall libc6-i386
$ ./adb
Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.29

-d - directs command to the only connected USB device
returns an error if more than one USB device is present.
-e - directs command to the only running emulator.
...
