10.3. Running 32-bit Software

32-bit software that uses uname to probe for the architecture possibly may require an additional step to run properly. For this, use linux32, which changes the output of uname -m. Use it with the software by entering linux32 , a space, then the command to run the software. This can be used to run a shell in which uname is modified, which can then be used to start any number of programs in the linux32 environment.
