vmware-converter-client fail loading on 64 bit linux.
I have fixed it installing following package.

Listed package naming is for fedora 15.

yum install \
glibc.i686 \
libSM.i686 \
libXi.i686 \
libXrender.i686 \
libXrandr.i686 \
libXfixes.i686 \
libXcursor.i686 \
libXinerama.i686 \
libpng.i686 \
freetype.i686 \
fontconfig.i686 \
glib2.i686 \

That should do it.
