Re: [PLUG] "command not found" errors with different distro. 32-bit vs 64-bit?

Do you have CONFIG_IA32_EMULATION enabled in your kernel?  (zcat
/proc/config.gz | grep CONFIG_IA32_EMULATION should tell you -
assuming your kernel enables /proc/config.gz).

I don't have a config.gz in /proc.

As an aside, I think I need to add to my path/environment. What's a standard path file for a debian/ubuntu/mint system (location and contents)?

Also - do you have a /lib/ of some sort on your system
(might be in /lib32, or wherever your distro sticks 32-bit libraries)?
  Mine is /lib32/  If you're missing that you won't be
running anything 32-bit, and you need to install whatever package
provides it.  It is entirely possible that 32-bit support is not
installed by default in your distro - little requires it these days.
I could see them including it in the kernel but not installing the
linker, since the latter is just a few files that need to be

I have /lib and /lib64, but no /lib32. /lib does not contain any ld-linux* file.

dpkg --print-foreign-archictectures

I thought it was finally time to go 64-bit but maybe that was a mistake?
