11 Thank you, that helps a great deal. Is it correct that if a program does
12 have a -bin package I can emerge that and have it work as a 32 bit
13 program in the 64 bit environment (and the same with wine32)?
15 Thank you for your patience explaining such probably simple stuff to a
16 newbie. Even reading through the documents ahead of time gentoo seems to
17 take a bit to wrap your brain around, but I love it so far and am
18 learning a ton. :)
