Dream Compute libs to VPS?



I need to run a 32-bit app. It used to work before the upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04. like this:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/myname/lib ./my32bitapp
Solution by Justin on 5.17.2016:

The needed libraries from the packages “libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++5:i386” were copied to /home/myname/lib directory.

A symlink was created: ln -sf /lib/ld-2.15.so /home/myname/lib/ld-linux.so.2

Now after the upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04, it doesn’t work anymore.

I created a DreamCompute instance with Ubuntu 14.04, then I installed 32-bit support:

sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386
sudo apt-get install libstdc++5:i386

So my 32-bit app works again there. But I need to run it on my VPS.

I copied the libraries needed by my app (according to: ldd ./my32bitapp) to /home/myname/lib and tried to run it: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/myname/lib ./my32bitapp Unfortunately, it still doesn’t work.

Is it possible to use libraries from Dream Compute instance copied to VPS?


The only way to be sure is to try and see if/how this sort of ‘surgery’ fails. Unfortunately I can’t give you a better answer.
