Re: [HTCondor-users] HTCondor Debian Repository Fails for multi-arch

Right but I don't really want i386 packages. It's just that I cannot install the amd64 packages because the "apt-get update" fails on a machine that is configured for multi-arch. I don't actually know how that works -- but I'd assume apt will install amd64 packages if both amd64 and i386 packages are available. I'm not having problems getting the 32 bit version of octave or gap.

I'm not sure this qualifies as a bug either. I think you'd have to create an empty i386 Packages.gz file in order to support multi-arch.

Maybe I can delete the mult-arch config file, /var/lib/dpkg/arch every time I install/upgrade condor.

Hello John,

We don't have any i386 packages for HTCondor in our repositories. We
only build for amd64.

I've followed the instructions on that page but I get an error with
the apt-get update and when I try an install, it says the package
cannot be downloaded. This happens only on machines that are
condigured for multi-arch.
