Hi, norgo.

Don't try to run 32bit applications in a 64bit operating system.


Actually, that's not, strictly speaking, exactly true..... Although I understand where you're coming from.

Tahr 64, for instance, has 32-bit compatibility libraries in an SFS package, to allow running 32-bit applications within a 64-bit OS.

It's accepted fact that 32-bit stuff will run on a 64-bit CPU; the same cannot be said for the reverse.

I run the newest version of Chrome (now 64-bit only) in Tahr 64.....but I also run the final 32-bit version alongside it....

(Don't ask...!! Laughing )

Hi Mike,

by default it's not possible to run 32bit applications in a 64bit operating system because lack of needed libs.
To be able to run 32bit applications in a 64bit OS you will need the Multilib version of this OS.

Greetings

Mm. I agree. That's how Ubuntu, and all the mainstream distros do it. We, of course, in Puppy, don't have that ability.....which is where the '32-bit_compat_libs' SFS package comes into it. It achieves the same purpose.

In Windows, the 'system32' and 'syswow64' folders permit the same thing, essentially. At least, that's how I understand it.....

Sorry for de-railing your posting..!
