You may have noticed that “wmis” is not working in 64bit versions of Kali, because it relies on 32bit libraries. The error message when you try to run it is like

/usr/bin/wmis: error while loading shared libraries: libpam.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So this is how to fix it; add the 32bit repository, update your db, install the 32bit libraries and you’re ready to go:
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
apt-get install libpam0g:i386  libpopt0:i386 libgnutls26:i386

  1. I have the libpam problem, but I don’t see a libgnutls26 available for install. Here’s what I have:

    # apt-cache search libgnut
    libgnutls-deb0-28 – GNU TLS library – main runtime library
    libgnutls-openssl27 – GNU TLS library – OpenSSL wrapper
    libgnutls28-dev – GNU TLS library – development files
    libgnutls30 – GNU TLS library – main runtime library
    libgnutlsxx28 – GNU TLS library – C++ runtime library
    python-gnutls – Python wrapper for the GNUTLS library

    I tried installing libgnutlsxx28 and libgnutls30, but that didn’t help. Any advice on how I can resolve this conflict?

    • strange. did you try “apt-get install libgnutls30” or “apt-get install libgnutls30:i386” ?
