ia32-libs unable to install

Postby nixguy » 2012-08-16 16:40

Hello,

I am using debian sid amd64. I want to develop android apps, but i need to run the android emulator. For that i have to install ia32-libs.
This happens when I try to install

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 ia32-libs : Depends: ia32-libs-i386 but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

This happens when I try to install ia32-libs-i386
Code: Select all
root@debian:/home/victor# apt-get install ia32-libs-i386
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package ia32-libs-i386 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'ia32-libs-i386' has no installation candidate

I downloaded ia32-libs-i386 and tried to install it with dpkg.
Code: Select all
root@debian:/home/victor/Downloads# dpkg -i ia32-libs-i386_20120701_i386.deb
dpkg: error processing ia32-libs-i386_20120701_i386.deb (--install):
 package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)
Errors were encountered while processing:
 ia32-libs-i386_20120701_i386.deb

Do you have any solution?

Thanks in advance,
victor

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:

Abort.

Is it OK to continue. I don't want so many i386 packages. Will this mess up the system. Will android emulator work after doing that?
Thank you very much for help

You are running sid.
Test it and see.
If it doesn't work, try to figure out why and maybe file a bug report.
If it borks your system, restore from your backup.

Re: ia32-libs unable to install

Postby g1annos » 2012-12-03 15:30

UNABLE TO INSTALL:

I'm running testing. The packages ia32-libs and ia32-libs-gtk were ready to be upgraded. The new packages couldn't be installed. I thought I had to uninstall the installed versions first. I did it and I had to remove both Skype and GoogleEarth. Even naw, that I have them uninstalled I cannot install the new versions of ia32-libs and ia32-libs-gtk...

Isn't there any problem if I enable multiarch in order to install these packages? If I enable multiarch, install the new -multiarch packages and then I diasble multiarch, shall I receive upgrades for those packages? Shall I be able to install Skype and Googleearth again?

Thanks!

If you are using Wheezy, ia32-libs is deprecated, and you should consider migrating to multiarch :
Code: Select all
# dpkg --add-architecture i386
# apt-get update


Then, you will be able to install 32-bit packages this way :
Code: Select all
# apt-get install package:i386


Anyway, ia32-libs is not really usable anymore with Wheezy…

Fully agree!!! Also, if I may tell You something, I suggest that You install wine (that one who's not an emulator :). Ithink their dependencies are more stablished and can install something needed in your system.

As I understand it, in Wheezy ia32-libs is a transitional package (similar to a metapackage) that pulls in a bunch of 32-bit libraries as dependencies when it is installed or updated. My understanding of multi-arch is that it makes dpkg aware of the 32-bit (or other architecture) packages you have installed so that packages from multiple architectures can co-exist on the same machine.

On my computer, ia32-libs package was not installable because of a broken dependency to libsvga1:i386. When I tried to install libsvga1:i386 I received the following error message: "trying to overwrite shared '/etc/vga/null.keymap', which is different from other instances of package libsvga1:i386".

After a lot of Googling, I found a suggestion to remove the /etc/vga/ folder and reinstall libsvga1:i386. I would suggest renaming the folder instead of uninstalling it. This seemed to fix the problem for me. Standard warning that messing around with system folders is dangerous, so use caution.

Hm! Alright, it's good news that ia32-libs is no longer needed. But unfortunately some applications seems to need them. At skype download page there is one only debian package available, called skype-multiarch!!! It seems that debian wiki has NOT been udated refering to skype.

It is impossible to install Skype after removing ia32-libs!!! Shall I open a new tread or we'll discuss it here? I think the same happends with GoogleEarth as well.

For temporary run skype from the static package? And install all the 32-bit libs it complains about manually.

There is no static package any more. It is now said dynamic, and cannot really find the difference. Anyway it returns me
./skype
./skype: error while loading shared libraries: libXv.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
but I cannot find any package that contains libXv.so.1 at all in Debian repositories!!!

Any idea?

Perhaps libxv1:i386 does the trick? :| Anyway it is just a suggestion. And sorry about my outdated skype information.

I tried to install Skype on my Debian Sid with multiarch enabled, couldn't be simpler (package downloaded from https://www.skype.com/) :
Code: Select all
dpkg -i skype-debian_*_i386.deb
apt-get install -f


It just works !

PS : No ia32-libs on my system.

I downloaded Skype from there : https://www.skype.com/intl/en/get-skype ... g.debian32

I'm running an amd64 system, with i386 enabled via multiarch.

Download, then :
Code: Select all
# dpkg --add-architecture i386
# apt-get update
# dpkg -i skype-debian_*_i386.deb
# apt-get install -f
