Running 32bit binaries on 64bit crux
Hey guys,

Assuming you have 32bit executable support built
into your kernel ... What else do you need to get
32bit binaries to run ?

The reason I ask is that vmware-tools 32bit binaries
don't run on my CRUX-2.7 x86_64 install:

What's more... vmware-tools isn't even trying to run
the 64bit binaries at all making me thing that perl
(as the installer and other scripts) aren't being told
it's a 64bit system.

In fact perl -V says:

# perl -V | grep archname
osname=linux, osvers=, archname=linux-thread-multi
config_args='-des -Dprefix=/usr -Dprivlib=/usr/lib/perl5/5.12
-Dsitelib=/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.12 -Darchname=linux -Dman1ext=1pm
-Dman3ext=3pm -Dman1dir=/usr/man/man1 -Dman3dir=/usr/man/man3 -Di_gdbm
-Di_db -Duseshrplib -Dusethreads -Doptimize=-O2 -march=x86-64 -pipe

archname = linux-thread-multi

If this means the system is a multi-lib system supporting
both 32bit and 64bit - that's fine. But the vmware-tools
32bit binaries don't run (see paste).
