I'm not sure, is it a 32bit binary? My system is:

# uname -a
Linux trunks 2.6.26-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Sep 9 09:56:28 UTC 2008 x86_64 AMD 
Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

And I have no issues. I am a bit bleeding edge though. It seems strange that 
you are running 2.6 and you get that error.
