Pre-Requisites for 64 Bit Distributions of Linux
The Linux File Drop Vault Client is a 32 bit application, so if you are running a 64 bit Linux distribution it needs to be able to run 32 bit applications. For most modern distributions, there are 32 bit compatibility libraries that can be installed. This is typically an additional package or group of packages that is provided by your Linux distribution. For Debian or Ubuntu derivatives, the package is “ia32-libs”. For Arch Linux it is “lib32-gtk2”, For RedHat 5 systems it is a package group called “Legacy Software Support”, while for RedHat 6 systems the package group is called “Compatibility Libraries”. In other cases, please find out how to enable 32 bit compatibility for your specific distribution.
