Thread: 32bit bombs out

    Angry 32bit bombs out

    I am trying to run the opensuse equivalent to ubuntu's ia32-lib. I have gathered that I should install the 32-bit environment on my 64-bit 12.3. However, this is what happens:

    burn:/home/erik/development # zypper install -t pattern 32bit
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...

    The following NEW pattern is going to be installed:
    32bit

    Nothing to do.

    burn:/home/erik/development #

    When I try to install the "32-Bit Runtime Environment" pattern in YaST, the window just disappears after I click "Accept". Looks like a bug to me. Any thoughts?

    It means, I think, that it is already installed.

    No, it clearly states that it is going to install 32bit because it is not installed. Likewise, in YaST, the 32 bit environment pattern is not ticked. I tick it, click Accept and the window disappears.

    _very few! try to add -v to your zypper incantation, and lets see if
    verbose will give us a hint...try the first and if it gives no hints,
    then try the second

    Code:
    zypper -v install -t pattern 32bit
    zypper -vv install -t pattern 32bit
    note: this may be a waste of time.....if so: sorry in advance.
