Subject: Bug#535365: ia32-apt-get: Should drop 32-bit version of type-handling
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.debian.devel.bugs.general
Date: Wednesday 1st July 2009 23:10:29 UTC (over 7 years ago)
Package: ia32-apt-get
Version: 20
Severity: normal

In a pbuilder amd64 chroot, after installing ia32-apt-get and doing an
apt-get 
update (unsetting DEBIAN_FRONTEND so that I could choose the "All" option
in 
the debconf prompt):

frobozz:/tmp# dpkg-architecture
DEB_BUILD_ARCH=amd64
DEB_BUILD_ARCH_OS=linux
DEB_BUILD_ARCH_CPU=amd64
DEB_BUILD_GNU_CPU=x86_64
DEB_BUILD_GNU_SYSTEM=linux-gnu
DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE=x86_64-linux-gnu
DEB_HOST_ARCH=amd64
DEB_HOST_ARCH_OS=linux
DEB_HOST_ARCH_CPU=amd64
DEB_HOST_GNU_CPU=x86_64
DEB_HOST_GNU_SYSTEM=linux-gnu
DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE=x86_64-linux-gnu
frobozz:/tmp# apt-get install i386

Note, selecting type-handling instead of i386                              
   
The following NEW packages will be installed:                              
   
  type-handling

Note, selecting type-handling instead of not+amd64
type-handling is already the newest version.

So having a 32-bit version of type-handling available to install seems to 
defeat the whole purpose of the type-handling package.
