Running 32bit Eclipse on 64bit Linux

The release notes for Flex Builder Linux don't match what I had to do to get 32bit Eclipse running on my 64bit Linux install, so here are the steps I took. They don't cover installing the (debug) Flash player into a 32bit version of FireFox, as this is well covered elsewhere.

Want a BuzzWord account ?

According to the latest blog post from Virtual Ubiquity

Got BuzzWord on Linux ?

In order to login to the BuzzWord beta from a Linux machine, you'll need to use the user-agent switcher extension, and set your user agent to something like

Mozilla/5.0 (windows; U; windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050821 firefox/1.5

All the buttons I pressed seemed to work fine, though obviously it's even less supported than BuzzWord is normally.

Got BuzzWord ?

If you are on the BuzzWord trial, and would like a handy list of what the fonts look like, drop me a note and I'll share the document with you.

Everyone else - wait :-)
