How to install Pixel for 64-bit Linux in compatibility mode ?
To run Pixel with full capabilities in a mixed 64/32 bit environment,
you must take a few extra steps to get it running. First, your
distribution must be set up so that there is a /usr/lib64 and
/usr/lib32. I am using Gentoo and using the 64 bit installation CD, it
was set up this way.
- Go to the Pixel website and download the 64 bit compat version of Pixel from Support section.
- Install the program as normal.
- Open your favorite console and go to the Pixel directory (usually ~/Pixel)
- Type ./pixel and hit enter, if you don’t already have a lot of compatibility libraries, it will not run and should dump to the prompt with an error about a missing so file.
- If you have Gentoo there are many ebuilds that facilitate this process. Run ’emerge -s emul’ and emerge the related packages (like the SDL compatibility ebuild).
- If you do not have Gentoo, look to your distribution’s information to see if there are any compatibility packages.
- After all this, take the filename of the missing library (e.g. libieee1284.so.3) and go to http://www.rpmfind.net and search for it.
- In the rightmost column you can download RPMs. You want to download the RPM that has 386 or 686 in it, not the x86_64 or src varities. I found that the sourceforge varieties work best. The Fedora RPMs are sometimes missing files. Download the respective RPM.
- Now you must install rpm2targz. It is difficult to find, in Gentoo you may emerge it. Others may wish to look here
- Download the RPM to a temp directory, then run rpm2targz <rpm>.rpm. It will generate a tar.gz with the RPM’s contents inside.
- Untargz the file (tar zxpfv <rpm>.tar.gz).
- You will need to login as root now.
- Copy all the files from ./usr/lib/ to /usr/lib32 (Note the relative path, it is not /usr/lib)
- Run ldconfig
- Run Pixel again, repeat as necessary.
