    I'm working on setting up building system on VMware 5.0.2 and Ubuntu 12.10 64bit. I need 32 bit library, too and did "apt-get install ia32-libs


    After that I did
    /$ ls -l / |grep lib

    drwxr-xr-x 22 root root 4096 Jul 19 11:31 lib
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 19 11:31 lib64

    $ uname -a
    Linux funhouse 3.5.0-17-generic #28-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 9 19:31:23 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    but one of colleagues told me on his system it's


    $ ls -l / |grep lib
    drwxr-xr-x 12 root root 12288 Apr 8 16:51 lib
    drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 12288 Apr 10 11:03 lib32
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Jan 24 2012 lib64 -> /lib
    Can someone let me know what's going on and what I should do if I'd like to have libraries installed exactly the same as his?

    Thanks a lot

    Are you running the same linux distribution and version? The trick is that some linux distributions put things in different file system locations.

    Thanks, I think that's what it is.
