advice on 32 bit browser/java on slack64 multilib system
Can anyone give me some advice on the easiest way to accomplish this. I am running slackware64 13.37 with multilib. I am trying to do online deposits of checks with US Bank. Unfortunately they only support 32 bit java. I have wine and PlayOnLinux installed as well.
So my question is, what is the EASIEST way to accomplish my goal since I will be using this solution for this one purpose only. Can I install the 32 bit package for firefox simultaneously with the 64 bit? Same question for java, which I installed using the script in /extra.
(At a later stage it is supposed to interact with my scanner, and I may run into some 32/64 bit issues then as well, assuming I get there. And, of course, this stuff is really only supported by the bank for windows/mac, so that may come up later.)
Thanks in advance for your thoughts,
When I implemented compat32pkg I wrote an howto about using firefox 32 and 64-bit at the same time.
If you don't want to use compat32pkg to install 32-bit firefox, you will have to proceed as below (slackware 13.37) :
To start 32-bit firefox, you will have to run /usr/bin/32/firefox. Note that if you want to use 32 and 64 bit firefox at the same time, you could have to create profiles as pointed out in the compat32pkg's howto.
Hope this helps.
Thanks, that's just the input I needed.
