You need to add i386 as an architecture and install libc6:i386 and other required packages to complete whatever install task you are working on. And second, your processor is in 32bit mode. I am anticipating that this problem will come up again so I'd like to learn how to determine which package to install if possible. Last Edited 3 months ago Comments. Debian 9 was preceded by. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The chroot method is inefficient too and is as complex as the ia32 approach so I would not recommend it if the ia32 method works.
Sadly, for some binary installers, you do not have any other choice. Details: I downloaded the 64-bit Debian Testing netinst a couple of days ago. Done Building dependency tree Reading state information. After that you type: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade It will check if there are newer libraries of the packages you already have. Once it is done, you should see a normal Debian root directory tree inside. In Ubuntu this is present since natty v1. If you give us more detail we can help more.
Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 on this site the. Note: this will do updates from the sid repro as well! The thing I care about is it is compiled to run out of a single directory anywhere on the filesystem. This should not be a problem because its functionality is still there, just in other packages. The whatprovides should be more documented. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.
I never heard of this until today. Your system must be upgraded before installation can proceed. I went back and installed Debian Stable and the command still failed in the same way: apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk Those packages no longer install on what is now called Debian Stable. Done Some packages could not be installed. Secondly, the best way I have found to get Flash is to use Swiftfox It is an optimized build of firefox that part I don't really care about. Odds are the package which contains fileX in Ubuntu is the same as the package which contains fileX in some other Debian based distribution, so that is an easy place to get the answer, especially if you're looking for the answer at a moment in which you can't run apt such as while I'm on the Windows computer I'm using right now. There comes a moment though when you have to use 32-bit applications in your 64-bit system.
Not only is there broken packages, the system doesn't even know what packages are broken, so Debian Stable is my only solution I know of right now. I've been rather wary to switch to 64-bit Debian, because the only machine I could use atm is a remote system in another country where I don't want to risk anything. Done E: Unable to locate package lib32bz2-1. Changing back to default is necessary to avoid errors when logging into Zoneminder. Compared to previous point release, this Debian release fixes serious problems and some security issues.
This is one of the first or oldest distributions in Linux's history, and the first version was released in 1993. Existing packages work fine in a multiarch environment, just as before, but to gain the benefits of co-installation or cross-architecture dependencies, many packages need to be made 'multiarch-aware'. The problems starts when I attempt to install the 32-bit libraries via: apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk that returns: root breath:~ apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk Reading package lists. Not the answer you're looking for? The ia32-libs package has been completely replaced by lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1. Check by seeing if dpkg --print-foreign-architectures is understood.
Did you look in your apt configs to see what you might have pinned or held? Download it and install it manually, then the dependencies should be resolved. While it makes for nice geek points, it is a waste of time to compile everything from source. So, it's better to install libc6-i386 directly. On Debian Wheezy, it is now possible to run a i386-linux-gnu application on an amd64-linux-gnu system. Start with a fresh Debian 9 install. My apologies, but I've tried and tried all of these suggestions and still cannot get a 32 bit version of libc. Packages can now be specified as 'package:architecture' pretty-much anywhere that was previously just 'package', so we have libc:i386 and libc:amd64, unfortunately the semantics in dpkg and apt are slightly different so you might get different results, but it should always be safe and unambiguous to arch-qualify packages.
Roger I appreciate your quick response and I tried it, with no success. I don't want to break the apps that are currently dependent on that symlink. Last Edited 6 months ago Comments. Done Some packages could not be installed. Its a native mode and stays in that mode as soon as a kernel is run, beit either a 64 or a 32bit kernel.
