I've downloaded the TeamSpeak 3 server from their official website (it's 64 bit, as my dedicated server is 64 bit too).

This is what I get,when I'm trying to run the server:

Starting the TeamSpeak 3 server
TeamSpeak 3 server started, for details please view the log file
/libexec/ scott# /lib/ unsupported file layout

Whats wrong? /libexec/ exists, same as the second one, is there any solution for that?

What distro are you running? Need more information.

If your TS3 server is 64-bit and you're on a Fedora or Red Hat derived distribution, you're getting that error because all the binaries in /lib are 32-bit and you can't load 32-bit images into a 64-bit address space.

You might need to add /lib64 to your /etc/ file (and then run ldconfig) or export the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib64, like this:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib64

I'm using FreeBSD @tags Are the steps you specified are similar on FreeBSD? – Scott Jul 11 '12 at 15:12
Bah, silly tags. State it in your question! :) But yeah, FreeBSD follows the Red Hat philosophy of /lib and /usr/lib being 32-bit and /usr/lib64 and /lib64 being 64-bit. It's trying to load a 32-bit image into a 64-bit address space. That would also explain why I didn't recognize the error message "unsupported file layout" from Linux's errno implementation... – allquixotic Jul 11 '12 at 15:17
Also are you running the Linux version of Teamspeak3 or are you running a native FreeBSD version? – allquixotic Jul 11 '12 at 15:18
Native FreeBSD version. – Scott Jul 11 '12 at 15:28
Problem solved. I had to remove the /lib/ library and then the problem was gone. Kinda strange. – Scott Jul 13 '12 at 0:06

FreeBSD does not have a lib64. It has a lib32 directory.

Teamspeak is a Linux binary, and the linux emulation is always 32bit. So if it is a linux binary you need the 32bit version

On the other hand there is no /lib/ in FreeBSD. Delete that file & it should work fine
