Linux remaster / build help

Recommended Posts

Yes the title is weird. Anyway;


A few months ago the Folding CD page was taken down by its creator. I have been attempting to resurrect the project. i have been installing what its says the system needs according to the README. But have hit a snag. When running 

apt-get  install ia32-libs

I get the following response:

[email protected]:~# apt-get install ia32-libs
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. 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 following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  ia32-libs: Depends: ia32-libs-multiarch but it is not installable
E: Broken packages

System information is as follows:


[email protected]:~# cat /proc/version

Linux version 2.6.32-21-server ([email protected]) (gcc version 4.4.3 (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5) ) #32-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 16 09:17:34 UTC 2010


The envroment is a hosdted VPS, thus, my ability to monkey with the OS is limited.

Hopefully this doesn't break anything... but try

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

then try your 

apt-get  install ia32-libs

Hmm. What depends on that specific package?


Did you do an update before starting to install packages?
