Problem with ia32-libs


Hello,

Does anyone know why I can't install ia32-libs ? (Ubuntu 14.04 virtualbox)

Code:
root@alpha-VirtualBox:/home/alpha# sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package ia32-libs is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
  lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0

E: Package 'ia32-libs' has no installation candidate
Thank you

That package, from experience, I only saw it used for Skype from Ubuntu repo
Now that Skype has changed its client recently, here is what I see and expect
Code:
apt-cache policy ia32-libs skype
ia32-libs:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: (none)
  Version table:
N: Unable to locate package skype
Why do you need the ia32-libs package and is one of the suggested packages going to work?
Is this Skype, or not-Skype-related?

Just sayin'

It's not Skype-related. It's actually for the xilinx tools and arm-xilinx-linux-gnueabi in here.

The instructions that you link to only suggest the installation of ia32-libs for Ubuntu 12.04. You're running Ubuntu 14.04.

Did you try installing the Xilinx tools without first attempting to install ia32-libs?

hydrurga I had only installed Vivado and SDK (2015.4). It opens the program and reads the bitstream. But I haven't done anything further than that: Such as Uboot and Linux kernel etc ...

I tired to build the host software without installing ia32-libs, I got an error: arm-xilinx-linux-gnueabi-gcc: not found.
If it helps, here's the context.
