    In 64 bits platforms, probably you need also:

    – libc6-i386
    – libc6-dev-i386

    The error: “File not found %fileName%”, could be fix with:

    * YOU HAVE TO BACKUP /lib/
    * ln -s /lib/ /lib/
    * Click on “Retry”
    * Restore the file (for some reason, the installer breaks this links)

    (tip: watch the error log)
