Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The first has to be used to manage (install, update, uninstall) the 64-bit part of the multilib (multilib version of gcc, glibc, and, the tool compat32-tools).
The second has to be used to manage (install, upgrade, remove) the 32-bit compatibility layer (subset of packages that provides 32-bit libraries).
1st, install the 64-bit part of the multilib using multilibpkg, as below :
$ multilibpkg --mirror @alienbase.nl-13.37 --install
multilibpkg ver. 1.2.120425 (stable)
(INFO) No default multilib-mirror was defined in configuration's script /etc/multilibpkg/multilibpkg.conf
(WARNING) You're using multilibpkg in mode --install, while the system is not
(WARNING) in run level 1: current runlevel is (3).

Then you have to install the 32-bit compatibility layer using compat32pkg, as below :
$ compat32pkg --mirror @worldwide-13.37 --install layer-32
compat32pkg ver. 1.4.120430 (stable)
(INFO) No default mirror was defined in configuration's script /etc/compat32pkg/compat32pkg.conf

64bit wine is able to run 32bit programs. Just create a new 32bit wineprefix with
Although a win64 WINEARCH is meant to be able to run 32-bit Windows applications as well as 64-bit ones, support for this is limited in Wine and users are encouraged to use a win32 WINEPREFIX for the time being until support improves.
