I'm on Debian 7.9 (wheezy) x64, and I would like to install
I already added
dpkg --architecture, updated
aptitude and installed
BTW, no matter how I try,
build-essential systematically generates an error of dependencies with:
apt-get install build-essential:i386 Depend : dpkg-dev:i386 (>= 1.13.5) E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages...
If someone has an idea... Thanks.
Also, I found this on Debian Mailing Lists - Re: cross-build-essential
Say I want to have the build-essential for i386 installed on amd64. I could install build-essential:i386, replacing gcc/g++:amd64 with gcc/g++:i386. Wouldn't that give me everything needed to cross-compile for i386?
In that case, yes, because you can run x86 code on an AMD64 or Intel 64 CPU. Though you would indeed be replacing gcc-4.7:amd64 etc. with gcc-4.7:i386 etc. as the packages aren't co-installable with themselves.
Is it true?
