Hi All,

 

If you are confused about recent changes to 32-bit compatibility in Gentoo and Funtoo, be sure to read this news item:

It explains what's going on.

Best Regards,

Daniel

I have a pure 64-bit system with no emul packages. So I can install skype without having to install emul packages now? Cool. 

 

Nice fix seeing that the skype team can't even make a 64-bit application (haha).  :)

 

Thanks a lot!

Unfortunately, no. pure64 is special kind that is purely 64 bit, not possible to install 32-bit applications. The only possible way is to utilize kernel 32-bit emulation (CONFIG_IA32_EMULATION) and using 32-bit chroot.

I might've been confusing terms, was a bit tired yesterday. I don't have a pure64 profile enabled. I have masked emul packages and set 64 bit flags.
