HOWTO: 32Bit Chroot on 64Bit Installs

Most of this comes from http://digital-conquest.ath.cx/wiki/...h_debbootstrap but I wanted to put together a cleaned up version that worked for me here (There are typos and inaccuracies on the wiki page).
sudo apt-get install dchroot debootstrapsudo mkdir /chroot/sudo gedit /etc/dchroot.conf
Add this line: hoary /chrootsudo debootstrap --arch i386 hoary /chroot/ http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntusudo chroot /chroot/dpkg-reconfigure locales
In another terminal window (or by existing chroot):
sudo gedit /chroot/etc/apt/sources.listAdd the following lines:
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary main restricted universe multiversedeb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-security main restricted universe multiverse
(We do this step because gedit has yet to be installed in the chroot environment)
In your chrooted environment (chroot /chroot):
apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade

cannot compile 32bit application on 64bit ubuntu 9.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 4, 2009
We have been developing a portable 3D game/graphics/simulation application for some time on 32-bit ubuntu 8.04 LTS. Finally we are ready to create versions that take advantage of the extra CPU/SIMD registers, instructions and efficiencies available only in 64-bit mode executables.
So we installed 64-bit ubuntu 9.04 on our computers with the intention to continue development on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of our applications. We installed the ia32 libs via the synaptic package manager application, but compilation fails with the following error message:
ld cannot find -lstdc++
I assume this means the 32-bit version of the stdc++ library is not installed, or is not installed in the expected location. But I don't know what to do about it. I do not find an obvious solution. I'm guessing the 64-bt stdc++ library was installed when we installed the "build-essential" package. But I don't see any "build-essential32" or equivalent, nor "libc++32" or e
3GB ram but 64bit processor. Do i go with 32bit or 64bit OS?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 14, 2012
I have a quad core 64bit processor, however, i only have 3 gb ram. I do plan on getting more ram but things are tight with cash at the moment. Are there any real benefits to be had from installing 64 bit Ubuntu on my computer? I use Ardour, the digital audio workstation, a lot and i'm wondering would i get any better performance out of a programme that needs the power if i installed 64bit? Not that i'm running low on power, i get by without any problems but i'm just curious.
[SOLVED] Triple boot: Ubuntu 64bit, Windows XP 32bit and Windows XP x64

The best I could do yet was to install first Windows XP 32-bit and then Ubuntu 32-bit.
But how could I make this triple boot?

Will 64bit Ubuntu use 4gb of Ram when runnin a 32bit VM Windows Environment?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 24, 2009
I'm getting ready to setup a work new laptop and would like to run the same 64bit Ubuntu desktop that I use at home. Because this is my work computer I will need several programs - photoshop / indesign / helpdesk / ect, to run in a virtualized windows environment.
So, if I set up 64bit Ubuntu - not as a dual boot but as the main OS - will the 4gb of ram still be utilized, when I open up and run a 32bit copy of XP?
My goal here is not only to switch my main computing and office functions over to Linux / Ubuntu while preserving the ability to run those other programs in Windows, but hopefully to also gaining a little more speed at the same time. Adobe programs are hogs.
