This question already has an answer here:
I'm trying to build an ubuntu embedded linux kernel for Beaglebone.
Part of the build has a dependency for ia32-libs.
When I try to install it it say it needs ia32-libs-multiarch.
But it says its not installable! (see below). I have tried other solutions from this forum without success.
Can someone explain what is happening and what I can do about it?
