Compile 32bit apps (AUR)

Hi people,

Will it be possible to compile a 32bit app as 32bit and then run it on x86_64 with lib32* ?

I have been trying to get freewheeling to work, bit to no avail :'(

EDIT: Was my own sillyness that was buggering me. All works fine

You would either need to install a multilib gcc or set up a chroot in order to compile a 32 bit app on a 64 bit machine. Multilib should be the easiest, but last time I tried it it didn't work well at all, but maybe it's better now.

Cheers for the info guys xD

I got the program to compile and it works fine (or at least as it should) xD Seems all I needed to do was add x86_64 flag to arch type in the PKGBUILD. Surprised i didnt figure it out sooner, but in my defence I was hungry ;D
