I'm running Debian testing "squeeze" on amd64.
Applications that need 32-bit nvidia acceleration (like for instance World
of Warcraft in wine) no longer start.
It appears the solution is to install nvidia-glx-ia32 185.18.14-2 amd64.
nvidia-glx-ia32 185.18.14-2 amd64 is available in Debian unstable "sid", but
it still is not available in Debian testing "squeeze".
Trying to find out why it was not in testing yet, I looked at this page:
... but that page doesn't explain why nvidia-glx-ia32 185.18.14-2 amd64 is
not in testing yet, probably because nvidia-glx-ia32 is in "non-free".
I tried what Edwin Török suggested. I don't have /emul anymore, it was
removed two days ago. I did dpkg-deb -X
nvidia-glx-ia32_185.18.14-2_amd64.deb, and then I copied the files
libGL.so.185.18.14, libGLcore.so.185.18.14, libnvidia-tls.so.185.18.14 to
/usr/lib32/ and I created the symlinks. Note that I can't find
Alas, applications that need 32-bit nvidia acceleration still don't start.
It would be nice if nvidia-glx-ia32 185.18.14-2 amd64 could be in testing as
soon as possible :)
