Somehow I got on this technical E-mail list for UBUNTU.  I don't have much information
that I can share, so please remove me from this E-mail list.
Thanks, Bob Watson

I have libm.so on my karmic 64 bit as follows:

/usr/lib/libm.so   and
wajig whichpkg /lib/libm.so.6 says
wajig whichpkg /usr/lib/libm.so  says
wajig whichpk /lib32/libm.so.6 says

sudo aptitude install wajig will allow you to do the same detective work
for you install.
Try reinstalling the mentioned library files to see if that fixes your
problem.  That is the libc6 ones.
Sorry Nils for butting in.
