Multiarch on Crunchbang
How to correctly enable multiarch support on a 64bit crunchbang install.
This tutorial was blatantly stolen from Jon Almeida’s website, so thanks to him for putting this together.
Add the new architecture via dpkg:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
Add [arch=amd64,i386] to each source in /etc/apt/sources.list. The resulting lines should look something like this:
deb [arch=amd64,i386] http://packages.crunchbang.org/waldorf waldorf main
Upgrade things, and install ia32-libs, then upgrade again for good measure:
su -c "aptitude update && aptitude upgrade -fy" sudo aptitude install ia32-libs su -c "aptitude update && aptitude upgrade -fy"
Now you should be able to install and run 32 bit libraries and programs along side the 64 bit ones.
