comment What happened to the ia32-libs package?
@gertvdijk: The package itself represents a limited use case; for a more general purpose you can multi-arch, but for people who were using this one specific package before, it seems to have been replaced with "lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 lib32asound2", which you can install without having to use multi-arch: that covers the same use cases as the previous package. In essence, I found these answers unhelpful, as multi-arch was overkill for the reason that ia32-libs existed, was surprised there wasn't a more direct drop-in replacement, and wasn't disappointed when I researched this further.
