Hi Everybody

I successfully installed Debian Stretch last weekend, configuring it to
systemv init instead of systemd. I then downloaded and installed
the successor to the Netscape Navigator suite.

Here is what happens when I try to execute it, as root. (The same thing
when I try it as non-root.)

# cd /usr/local/seamonkey2/seamonkey/
# ll seamonkey
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 128k 2016-12-13 23:11 seamonkey*
# file seamonkey
seamonkey: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV),
dynamically linked, interpreter /lib/ld-linux.so.2, for GNU/Linux
BuildID[sha1]=565c86dc8c789b3925e3d77d3323ba81f301e728, stripped
# ./seamonkey
bash: ./seamonkey: No such file or directory
# chmod 644 seamonkey
# ./seamonkey
bash: ./seamonkey: Permission denied
# chmod 755 seamonkey
# ll seamonkey
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 128k 2016-12-13 23:11 seamonkey*
# ./seamonkey
bash: ./seamonkey: No such file or directory

I made sure that all of the directories in the path are searchable.

# ll -d /usr
drwxr-xr-x 11 root root 4.1k 2017-06-24 18:06 /usr/
# ll -d /usr/local/
drwxrwsr-x 11 root staff 4.1k 2017-06-28 17:04 /usr/local//
# ll -d /usr/local/seamonkey2/
drwxr-sr-x 3 root staff 4.1k 2017-06-28 17:11 /usr/local/seamonkey2//
# ll -d /usr/local/seamonkey2/seamonkey
drwsrwsr-x 10 root staff 4.1k 2016-12-13 23:11

I put a symbolic link to the seamonkey executable in /usr/local/bin,
where i keep several other
executables that I have developed.

# cd /usr/local/bin
# ls
./          DelIptcFields@                  owlit@               
../         GthumbCommentExtract@           owzit@               
antiquate@  InsertGthumbCommentAsIptcKeys@  PrettyPrintImageInfo@ 
# ./seamonkey
bash: ./seamonkey: No such file or directory
# ll seamonkey
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root staff 41 2017-06-28 17:22 seamonkey ->

Five of these work just fine. There are four of them that I can't test
without a lot of setup.
And of course seamonkey isn't working.

I have checked all of the logs and can find no messages related to

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening?
