Re: [Rd] Multiple sub-architecture: linking issue

Thank you for your reply Simon.

I have the gcc-multilib and ia32-libs packages installed (I think their installation is part of the procedure you described in your previous post). Could not find the package ia32-dev you mention. It seems to be flagged as obsolete in Natty repositories:

$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-dev lib32readline6-dev lib32ncurses5-dev lib32icu-dev gcc-multilib gfortran-multilib [sudo] password for renaud:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package ia32-libs-dev 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:

   lib32bz2-dev ia32-libs lib32z1-dev

I succeeded in compiling both architecture of R without a problem though. Would that have been possible if some of the files provided by this package were missing?
I can try look around for this exact package.
