== ia32-libs not needed for x86_64 as far as I can tell ==
Kudos! What a neat way of tihnikng about it.
I tried to reduce the amount of steps required to manually install the Catalyst drivers. Instead of just accepting that the ia32-libs package was needed for the x86_64 architecture, I skipped it, including the creation of the symbolic link. Guess what? It works like a charm. The .debs get created, the drivers functions just nicely and the CCC can be used without any issues.
This is quite a reduction of packages to install, it only leaves lib32gcc1. This makes me wonder, why where they required in the first place? Do you happen to know why so I can double check if that is working?--[[User:Forage|Forage]] 19:58, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
@Forage: ia32-libs used to be the package for basic 32-bit support. fglrx uses the 32-bit libs to build a 32-bit version of libGL and libglx (in case you need to run 32-bit 3D programs) and CCC itself was a 32-bit program (still is?).
Debian/Ubuntu have moved to a new multiarch system now and I agree that the line should be changed. I'm not the one that added the symlink command and I will remove it. Thanks for your contributions to the wiki.
