Re: [Help] Installing etch on dual opteron cluster head node

On our Opteron cluster I have a full Debian Sarge 64-bit install and a full Debian Sarge chroot on the head node. I've found that sometimes it's difficult (if not impossible) to compile 32-bit applications in the 64-bit install because of odd library dependencies.

Our dual opteron server which is to function as a head node has arrived
and I want to run debian amd64 on the head node. We need to be able to
compile both 32-bit and 64-bit applications on this node. Technically
this node will not execute any application. The idea is to run sid/etch
on the machine. Scanning the mailing list archives I assume the only
package that needs to be installed for 32-bit applications to be
compiles is libc6-dev-i386. I would really appreciate any advice on this
from past experiences the developers and users might have had.
