    Default 32bit fglrx on 64bit system

    Hello,

    I'd like to install a 32bit compatibility driver on my 64bit system just like the option Nvidia offers upon driver installation. How do I do that with fglrx?

    the amd64-fglrx-installer installs x86 libs by default, no need to do anything special.

    On arch-64 you need the lib32-catalyst-utils to be installed, if you want wine to run.

    the best way if you realy need this stuff..

    install a 32bit linux in an VM copy the hole / into an dir on your 64bit system.

    and use chroot in your 64bit system to have full 32bit support in this dir folder.

    You don't have too, because Arch takes care of that. Every single lib32 you need for wine to run, will be installed in /opt, and wine knows they is placed there.
