Description

This is basically how we got away with zero complaints about making Linerva 64-bit:

dr-wily:~ geofft$ cat /etc/ld.so.conf.d/zz-linerva-32bit-compatibility.conf 
# Don’t let stray absolute symlinks in /srv/squeeze-i386 override real 
# libraries!
/lib
/usr/lib

# 32-bit compatibility via libraries in /srv/squeeze-i386
/srv/squeeze-i386/lib
/srv/squeeze-i386/usr/lib

I guess if athena.dialup is shortly becoming Precise, multiarch is an acceptable answer, given some testing.

Replying to geofft:

Is there a good way to figure out what 32-bit apps are being used, to make testing easier?

athena.dialup deployed Precise, which has multiarch, so this is probably not a problem for them. But, for completeness' sake, I documented our config in an email to bug-dialup ( discuss:13535).
