openoffice on amd64 with ia32-libs?


I wonder how I run openoffice (or acroread) on my Debian amd64 Etch. I know how to run a chroot with openoffice, but now I wan to try emulation with the ia32-libs. Who can help me with this?

Why bother ... Just get the real 64-bit OpenOffice.org from Sid ... Works great.

For "acroread," install evince.

In AMD64 Sid there is a program called "gnash." ($ apt-cache search gnash) Install gnash and the appropriate browser plugin, plus any of the related packages you want.

It's a little bit shaky yet, but it's a big improvement over no flash at all.

Nope. Not unless you're willing to set up a chroot. Google "wine amd64 debian". As far as I can tell there is not even a 64-bit Wine in the works.

Personally, I am very happy about that. Never have understood why the 1st thing people want to do with their Linux installation is set up a Windows emulator. I also refuse to use ndiswrapper. There is no need for me to use software designed for Windows, thus allowing hardware and software vendors to continue to ignore Linux. If you need to run Windows apps, that's why we have dual boot systems.

you can force install it.

dpkg -i --force all winepackagename

Works for me. I use wine for some video tools.
