Vectorbie Questions / Re: 32-bit software on 64-bit Linux?

I am not aware of anyone who successfully implemented multilib on VL. The Slackware outline would be the closest thing to a usable guide. TBH, I don't think the reward to effort ratio justifies pursuing it. Current VL is static and will not receive any more updates.

It seems that the way that article is written, it would only apply to Slackware and not Vector Linux, unless, of course, I'm greatly mistaken.

Multilib was not included because of its complexity.

Check out this guide if you want to try giving it a go: https://wiki.alienbase.nl/doku.php?id=slackware:multilib#adding_32-bit_slackware_libraries

You would need some type of multilib setup to allow that.

Hey Guys and Gals,
 Have been out of touch for some years, I know. But I missed the old forums, which are one of the best. I was saddened by the state of flux that VectorLinux is in. It seems that many Slackware based distros are finding themselves in a similar predicament. Ah ... Wolvix, Salix, Zenwalk, etc. While some are trying to stay viable like Absolute or perhaps Austrumi, it seems that the Future Shock of rapid and unpredictable change is proving to be too formidable a challenge for them.
 I had always enjoyed the Vector OS since 2009. And learned and shared a great deal from this forum of fellow enthusiasts.
 So my sincere gratitude to all and hoping that a resurgence is in the works for all Slaclware based OS's.
 Unfortunately life itself does often present formidable changes, and I also personally find myself in that category. Bewilderment ! Well I will let this go and wishing you all a very very Happy New Year !

As I started to say last night before being rudely interrupted by a bad connection that I have been mostly using Vector since 2004 and it would be a shame for this project not to continue. While I have no time to help because of work and long commutes, I can only contribute monetarily and will be happy to do so in the future if this project continues.
