64-Bit-Processors like Athlon 64 are able to execute 32- and 64-bit programs at the same time.
32bit packages can now be found in the [multilib]-repository. You will need to add this repository before downloading any 32bit lib.
You will always need to install ''lib32-glibc'' in order to execute 32-bit-programs. It might be necessary to fake the output of ''uname''. Use the package ''linux32'' for this.
Some legacy C++ programs also need ''lib32-libstdc++5''.
Programs using OpenGL need one of the following libraries:
* Open source drivers: lib32-{ati,intel,mach64,mga,nouveau,r128,savage,sis,tdfx,unichrome}-dri
* Closed source drivers: lib32-{catalyst,nvidia}-utils
* Software rendering: lib32-libgl
Programs using QT should run at once after installing ''lib32-qt''.
===Alsa & OpenAL===
For Alsa and OpenAL-Support you have to install ''lib32-alsa-lib'' and ''lib32-openal''.
==Tested Applications==
* Doom3, Enemy-Territory, Unreal Tournament
** 32-bit opengl library (specific to driver), lib32-alsa-lib, [lib32-libstdc++5, lib32-openal]
* Diablo II, Warcraft III
** 32-bit opengl library (specific to driver), lib32-alsa-lib, [For Warcraft: lib32-openal]
==Environment Variables==
Some useful Env Variables when running 32bit-applications without chroot:
For gtk2 input modules and such
For pango (lib32-pango includes these config files)
Iconv (conversion from 'XXXXXXX' is not supported or cannot convert from X to Y -errors)
Library paths without having them in /etc/ld.so.conf
GDK stuff (GdkPixbuf warnings errors criticals, lib32-gtk2 includes the file)
