Hi, first of all we don't top post as it is hard to read. Secondly you meant
amd64 and not md65 (I guess).
If this is the case you may need to install i386 compatibility aka
multiarch. This means you can run 386 software on 64bit.

Another option would be to use the amd64 package

I personally would try to compile and if compile succeeds repackage for

I wounder why you stick to the 0.1.4 when there is 0.1.5, but as it looks
like you have time to spend, you may try compiling both.
