Hi,

Ubuntu Server 12.04.4/12.10 64bit

Usually when installing Boinc on my Linux CLI system I do it from PPA/repository (CostaMagnaGianfranco) and apt-get install boinc-client.
But, I just read this. can it be true? Do I need to do this to get 64bit compatibility?!?

    Ubuntu

    Four packages are required for 64 bit compatability.
    Name Description
    ia32-libs description is unavailable
    libstdc++6 description is unavailable
    libstdc++5 description is unavailable
    freeglut3 description is unavailable

    Install all 4 packages at once with the following steps:

    Open a terminal.
    Enter

    sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libstdc++6 libstdc++5 freeglut3

The libraries aren't for 64bit compatibility, they're to allow 32bit applications to run on your 64bit Linux. You only need them if you have only errors when running 32bit applications on your 64bit Linux distro. It also says that on
64 Bit Condsiderations:

If you are running 64 bit Linux, you might have a problem with projects that issue 32 bit applications rather than 64 bit applications. To allow 32 bit applications to run on 64 bit Linux you must install 32 bit versions of certain shared libraries. The names of the packages containing the 32 bit libraries is different for each distro.

Do you need them for running Seti? No.
Seti sends 64bit applications to 64bit Linux hosts: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/apps.php
