Arrow Getting 32-Bit 3D Acceleration on 64-Bit Ubuntu


Hello! I'm running Netrunner 4.2 64-Bit (this is a tweaked version of Kubuntu 12.04) and am trying to run some games in Wine. Whenever I try to run something requiring 3D acceleration, I am told that I do not have 32-bit 3D acceleration enabled. I do, however, have 64-bit 3D acceleration enabled. I am using the integrated graphics with my Intel i5 CPU. I've spent a week or so trying to enable it myself, but after having made no progress, I resolved to post a question here.
Does anyone have any idea on how to go about enabling 32-bit 3D acceleration on a 64-bit system?
Thanks in advance!

You need ia32-libs and a 32-bit graphics driver.

I have ia32-libs. As far as a 32-bit graphics driver goes, I have 32-bit mesa and a 32-bit VA (Video Acceleration) library for Intel. Is it the 32-bit library for X that I need? It won't let me install that without uninstalling my 64-bit one.

Did you install the 32-bit xserver-xorg-video-intel? Or the 32-bit libgl?

I tried to install the 32-bit xserver-xorg-video-intel, but it wouldn't let me without uninstalling all of my 64-bit graphics drivers.
I can't find 32-bit libgl.

Hmm odd. Doesn't Ubuntu have some kind of 32-bit compat repository? Have you tried X.Org Edgers? On Arch 64, we have a multilib repository for most 32-bit libraries. Do you have a /usr/lib32 directory? What does this give you?

Code:
ls -l /usr/

have you searched in package manager for ia32? There might just be a lib you're missing that shows up if you do.
That said I know that multilib is changing in Debian so, by extension, Ubuntu and I don't know yet how the new system works.

Arrow Sorry That Took So Long!

Thank you all for your help. I'm sorry I haven't replied in a few days; I had finals at my college and came home right after. That's kept me fairly busy, lol.

I would assume so; I am able to see 32-bit packages in my searches. It is possible that I'm missing something, I suppose. Would you like to see my /etc/apt/sources.list? It's rather large...
I have not tried X-Org edgers; I try not to break my X. I'll try adding the repo and searching to see if there are any packages that might be of use, regardless.
I do indeed have a /usr/lib32.
Code:
sweyn78@s78-p775 ~Documents> cd /usr/lib32            
sweyn78@s78-p775 /u/lib32> ls
alsa-lib            libnss_mdns4_minimal.so.2  libstdc++.so.6
gconv               libnss_mdns4.so.2          libstdc++.so.6.0.16
libasound.so        libnss_mdns6_minimal.so.2  libz.so.1
libasound.so.2      libnss_mdns6.so.2          libz.so.1.2.3.4
libasound.so.2.0.0  libnss_mdns_minimal.so.2
libgcc_s.so.1       libnss_mdns.so.2

The only ia32 things that show up in searches are the typical ia32 packages, grub related packages, and (if I include 32-bit packages) lsb packages.

Why do you have Mint and Ubuntu packages mixed? That's probably not very good...

Have you seen this page?

I just use the Mint repos for things like mintupdate. I like some of Mint's software, but I dislike their KDE version. Looking at just the software available in Mint's repos, it doesn't seem like there's anything that would relate to this problem, and I've had this problem since before adding Mint's repos.
Regardless, I can comment them out if you think it might help.

You should check out that link. It describes multiarching on the new Debian (Ubuntu) dpkg.
