So, I posted previously about my frustration with having a lot of code not compatible with the AMD64 architecture, and thus not being able to easily move to a 64-bit platform in Linux/BSD lands. I was trolling around for a completely 'other' reason on some of the Ubuntu install boards, and found this happy little switch:

--force-architecture

Seems that little add-on to either apt-get or dpkg disables the architecture check, and will happily install a 32-bit program set into a 64-bit architecture. No need to build a virtual machine solely to run some of the programs any longer. Seems that Ubuntu, like Vista and XP, manages 32-bit code right alongside the 64-bit internally, and sets up separate install bases for them. Handy, but frustrating that it's only now that I found it.

Just to keep a handle on where to get the DVD decryption library since the various sites for it keep popping up and vanishing.
