So ldd is your friend here.

ldd vm-display-X11/.libs/vm-display-X11.so 

or where ever it is in your installation and you will get a list of
required libraries for that shared library.

We now want libXrender.so, and an 

apt search libXrender 

shows that I have installed libxrender-dev.  There is a i386 version
of this as well.

If you do not want the extra disk space for the -dev version the
package is confusingly named


So installing the i386 version of that will get past this error

But any shared libraries that ldd shows as not being found will need
to be installed before squeak will start.
