No, I have it on an x86 box and had to use the workaround here:
http://communities.vmware.com/message/1364852
/lib/libc-2.5.so is actually still available after the upgrade so you 
don't have to copy it from another system - it just isn't the target of 
the libc.so.6 symlink anymore.

Someone reported different behavior on core duo's vs. xeons which is 
probably what you are seeing, but eventually both crashed.
