I have an application that is dependent on ia32-libs and lib32nss-mdns. Among other things, ia32-libs packs libSDL-1.2 which I need to run the application.
It's my understand that the way to accomplish installing 32 bit SDL (now that the ia32-libs and lib32nss-mdns have been deprecated?), I need to:
However, apt-get wants to delete the following libraries:
sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev:i386
Why? I don't want to re-install Bumblebee, Nvidia's driver, and gcc a million times (Why would it want to delete gcc and Bumblebee anyway??).
The following packages will be REMOVED: bbswitch-dkms build-essential bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia dkms g++ g++-4.8
gcc gcc-4.8 gcc-4.8-multilib gcc-multilib libavahi-client-dev
libavahi-common-dev libcaca-dev libdrm-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglew-dev
libglib2.0-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libpng12-dev libpulse-dev
libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev libsdl1.2-dev
libslang2-dev libx11-xcb-dev mesa-common-dev nvidia-304 nvidia-current
nvidia-settings-304 primus virtualbox-dkms
Can I install ia32-libs on 13.10? It would make things less complex. Is there some other solution?
