I was following the question and instruction in this post to run 32bit applications on my Ubuntu 12.04.

ia32-libs broken package (Ubuntu 12.04 x64)

In particular, I did the followings:

sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri:i386
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch:i386
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

The installation was successful and I was able to run 32bit apps (downloaded directly, not installed from apt-get command).

However, when I restart the machine, it did not work up, freeze at the logo.

What should I do? I guest the installation removes all the important components :(

Thank you very much.
