Running 32bit apps in Ubuntu 64bit architecture

Posted on: January 19, 2010

Well and we are back, getting the habit of writing good blog posts is hard. But here is a short one, and I hope the beginning of more 🙂

I reinstall my system to Ubuntu Karmic Koala, and played with the vmware player to virtualize windows. My desktop at work supports 64-bit architecture so I decided to go with it, I have found little problems with the transition.

A lot of programs are in 32-bit architectures so you have to force installations here are the commands for that:

To install:

sudo dpkg -i –force-architecture linuxqq_v1.0.2-beta1_i386.deb

To remove:

sudo dpkg -r –force-architecture name

I found this on this Ubuntu guide
