I want to use some programs (CORSIKA and FLUKA) which are essentially designed for 32 bit systems.

I've installed the 32-bit version of 12.04 on my system (Intel® Core™ i7-2700K CPU @ 3.50GHz × 8).

Before this I had installed Ubuntu 9.10 (32-bit) on an older system and installed g77 from hardy repositories, compiled those programs without any problem.

But this time when changing the repositories, g77 could not be installed even I removed all the things that I thought make this installation impossible, for example I need gcc-3.4 and removed all newer versions and tried to install them from hardy repositories.

Now, with the g77 package installed, CORSIKA does not compile, and when I remove g77, FLUKA does not compile. I received a error messages like this:
crt1.o not found in /usr/bin/lb

In fact these '.o' files do not exist on my system user/bin/lb I have no directory /lb there so I do not know how to link it.

Can someone please explain how to get both packages installed?
