Default 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).
