  • Is this article still necessary after the introduction of the [multimod] repository? --ThatWhistlepainter 13:02, 20 September 2010 (EDT)
  • Why a C++ program in the "Execute 32bit apps" section for firefox?? Why not just a plain bash script??
  • Which commands should be run as root and which as user? Confusing.... for example xhost is not sane as root.
  • pppoe users should also link the /etc/ppp/resolv.conf:
sudo ln -f /etc/ppp/resolv.conf /opt/arch32/etc/ppp
  • Why invoke xhost, anyway?
  • The "edit your mirrorlist" part seems quite a dangerous thing to do, while you can have pacman --config /point/somewhere/else
  • The "alias wine='schroot -pqd "$(pwd)" -- wine'" part wont work. The reason is that if you run it without root priviliges, you will get (when removing the 'quiet' (q) flag):
E: Access not authorised
I: You do not have permission to access the schroot service.
I: This failure will be reported. 

...but even if you run it _with_ sudo, you will get:

wine: /home/username/.wine is not owned by you
  • DRI will fail to work at least in an chrooted Arch32 / wine enviroment if the appropriate dri package is not installed, although glxinfo will say something different.

Unexplained removal

Change in question: Install_bundled_32-bit_system_in_Arch64

The only significant removal worth discussion is the "alternative lightweight install". It isn't significantly different from the main method, and there's now a note that covers the idea well enough.

The section Install_bundled_32-bit_system_in_Arch64#arch32-light references the AUR project arch32-lightAUR, originally based on what was removed from here, and well maintained (last update was Oct 26, 2012).

Also worth noting is the similar page Arch32. --Emiralle (talk) 19:54, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
