ia32 libraries on lmde2 64bit

Post by hatebreed » Sun Oct 15, 2017 8:38 pm

I need to install the 32 bit libraries on 64 bit lmde2. These libraries don't exist apparently. Is there a way to get these to install?

You could try this:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt update
sudo apt install libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libc6:i386 libxft2:i386

He already has ! Messing around, no he really already had. Think the package you're looking for is called wine-development, just to be sure it's called the same thing in Mint's repos "apt-cache search wine-development" should be and if it is as Catweazel demonstrated. "sudo apt-get install wine-development:i386" to install the 32bit version.

Oops ... might also need this if it doesn't get pulled as a dependency ... libwine-development - Windows API implementation - library. Dunno never messed with wine.
