i386 architecture on Debian Jessie ARM port

Postby pzlingo » 2017-02-21 00:11

Hi. I am testing around installing i386 applications from within a chrooted debian jessie port on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.
I used debian together with linux deploy 2.0.1 (ru.meefik.linuxdeploy)

As I know that other Apps like Limbo may emulate completely i386 architectures on ARM-processors, I am searching if there is a possibility to get to similar results but using a linux-based operating system in a chroot-container.

I wonder if qemu also works 100% to emulate i386 on linux-arm-ports.

Following are steps to install.
- linuxdeploy configured for debian jessie with 8Gb imagefile.
- connect through VNC

apt-get install mc filezilla synaptic gdebi qemu binfmt-support qemu-user-static apt-transport-https
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

modify /etc/apt/sources.list to include the following repositories:
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/ jessie-updates main contrib non-free

apt-get update
apt install wine:i386

As wine-preloader is broken, enter in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu./wine/bin and rename wine-preloader.
At this point you should be able to type “wine --version” to check the version of wine.

Download of playonlinux package i386
wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/pool/main/p/ ... -1_all.deb

gdebi playonlinux_4.2.10-1_all.deb
apt-get install xterm:i386

Install latest or any wine-release and rename wine-preloader on downloaded wine-release in ./PlayOnLinux.

So I installed a windows program, install works fine, but throws errors on execution (program works very fine on real i386-debian installation)

Where do I have to start to be able to emulate a full i386 environment (i.e. multiarch)?
Are there packages missing because the installation is a minimal-build or is there another reason ?

My question is not only related to windows:i386 programs but also to have the complete linux-system functional also in i386
Help is apreciated.
