Re: [SOLVED] ia32 packages kept back from dist-upgrade

I have that on my Linux Mint Debian machine at home, which is also Wheezy-based. None of my #! machines has multilib enabled... but my netbook may need it for the Brother print drivers.

Re: [SOLVED] ia32 packages kept back from dist-upgrade

That's because ia32 libs are gone from the repos, with the move to multiarch. Read up on multiarch to see how to do the conversion properly, I can't really help you with the specifics. The guys over at the siduction froum have talked about thisl

Re: [SOLVED] ia32 packages kept back from dist-upgrade

Just tried the howto above on my #! box so I could install the 32-bit-only printer drivers from Brother, and also on my LMDE machine which was displaying the OP's original issue.

To sum up, run

# dpkg --add-architecture i386

Then add

[arch=amd64,i386]

between the deb and the URL in each line of your /etc/apt/sources.list. Then do an

apt-get update ; apt-get dist-upgrade

as usual.

It seems that after setting up multiarch support as in the howto and above, doing an

apt-get install ; apt-get dist-upgrade

replaces the ia32-libs metapackage with a boatload of individual i386 library packages. It came out to 138MB on my netbook. Just FYI, you may not wish to do this on a modem connection. wink

Re: [SOLVED] ia32 packages kept back from dist-upgrade

The following packages will be upgraded:

2 upgraded, 182 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 76.9 MB of archives.
After this operation, 112 MB of additional disk space will be used.

Done smoothly, thanks again bigbenaugust!
