Package: kernel-image
Version: 3.2.0
severity: serious

(kernel-image-3.2.0-4-amd64-di)

Dear developers,

32-bit programs, such as FireFox refuse to work on Debian 7.0 64-bit (amd64).
This is new fresh stock install from di-BETA4 Wheezy DVD. (KDE)
The same works great on Debian 6.0 64-bit !

user@deb7vm:~/Downloads$ uname -a
Linux deb7vm 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.35-2 x86_64 GNU/Linux
user@deb7vm:~/Downloads$ arch
x86_64

32-bit user-space app -- execution FAILURE !!!
user@deb7vm:~/Downloads$ file 32bit/firefox/firefox-bin
32bit/firefox/firefox-bin: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386,
version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux
2.6.9, stripped
user@deb7vm:~/Downloads$ 32bit/firefox/firefox-bin
bash: 32bit/firefox/firefox-bin: No such file or directory

64-bit user-space app - WORKS !
user@deb7vm:~/Downloads$ file 64bit/firefox/firefox-bin
64bit/firefox/firefox-bin: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version
1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9,
stripped
user@deb7vm:~/Downloads$ 64bit/firefox/firefox-bin
[programs WORKS]

Firefox 64-bit taken from:
http://mozilla.mirrors.tds.net/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest/linux-x86_64/en-US/firefox-17.0.1.tar.bz2
The 32-bit comes from mozilla.org home page. (it is the default)

Please enable 32-bit user-space apps to work on 64-bit O.S. *by
default*. There are tons of desktop 32-bit apps for Linux, that should
*just work*. I have no clue if the problem is kernel or someplace
else, so please forward this issue to the appropriate package team.
The CLI output (saying file not found) is of no help either, and is
very misleading.

I am using amd64 Debian GNU/Linux 7.0, kernel 3.2.

Hi Gergely,

if you take the effort to reassign to general, why dont you lower the severity 
as well?

And, if you explain how this is a user error, why dont you close it straight 
away?


cheers,
	Holger
