[Pkg-firebird-general] firebird service on amd64 as ia32 chroot?

Thanks for the fb-devel link, unfortunately I haven't kept much in
contact with it recently. I remember Nickolays doing these 64bit
changes, as Jim was concurrently doing his Vulcan 64bit changes.
I wasn't intending to do a 64bit build from souce but given your link, I
might try it - but from previous experience, dont hold your breath, Im
already 6mths behind on a lot of other things i'd like to try and do -
but who knows :-).
On a happier note, I've did the 32bit version running on my amd64bit system.
In addition to the ia32 chroot setup
to get the 32bit libraries.
All I then needed to do was install the packages directly into the amd64
dpkg --force-all -i libfirebird2-classic_1.5.1-4_i386.deb
dpkg --force-all -i firebird2-server-common_1.5.1-4_i386.deb
dpkg --force-all -i firebird2-utils-classic_1.5.1-4_i386.deb
dpkg --force-all -i firebird2-classic-server_1.5.1-4_i386.deb
dpkg --force-all -i firebird2-examples_1.5.1-4_i386.deb
and so far (for last few hours of playing) it seems to be working fine.

Hmmm, now that makes things difficult, what do I do, do I keep my
working 32bit install, or start playing with this :-).
