I have been struggling with this problem for few weeks, first in 8.10 and now in 9.04 64bit. I am trying to follow the guide at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766683 and fall at the first hurdle. When I try to install as per these instructions I continually get this error

E: Couldn't find package ia32-libs



I have had a good look round and there is Bug #190227 but it seems to only partially address my probs. I have tried to download from the US server rather than my local but this doesn't seem to work. And to be honest I am not really sure what I am doing when I do this. And why?

What can I do to solve this? My head is turning to mush on this prob that I have been working on for month on and off.

I just installed Jaunty yesterday and usually the first thing I do on a clean install is to install the ubuntu-restricted-extras meta package, it includes flash, jave and most of the codecs you need for most types of audio/video media. the ia32-libs package always gets installed.

that is what I am trying to install, and I am always getting the error that ia32-libs not found.

Check Software Sources to make sure you have the universe repository enabled, then run

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

Yes I have the universe repository enabled in software services.

Then this

Seeing as how you have several "Ign" errors, have you tried different servers?

Yeah I have changed to US and Australian servers and the result is always the same.

Don't quite know what to try next!

Full reinstall?

Here's a direct link: http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/amd64/ia32-libs/download

thanks Ann, I had already discovered those download pages but was hesitant because of the warning. However, I went ahead and downloaded ia32libs and I now have this error

error: Wrong architecture 'amd64'

I have googled and it would indicate that I am not running 64bit but resuts of uname -a

muriel@rimu-laptop:~$ uname -a
Linux rimu-laptop 2.6.28-11-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17 01:57:59 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

muriel@rimu-laptop:~$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.28-11-generic (buildd@palmer) (gcc version 4.3.3 (Ubuntu 4.3.3-5ubuntu4) ) #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17 01:57:59 UTC 2009



I understood that the i686 indicated 64bit? Sorry, I am not understanding this now. I would just like to install ubuntu-restricted-extras.

Just for reference to other users - a current Intel Core2Duo will bring as output of "uname -a" something like:

Linux hostname 2.6.28-11-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17 01:58:03 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I think the "x86_64" is the most important part... ;-)
