I've just built a 64-bit Ubuntu 9.10 workstation. Love it.
Turns out an app I want is 32-bit only. I found a handy tutorial on installing and using 32-bit libraries in the 64-bit environment.
It nearly worked but I couldn't find one specific package (libeel2-2 if that matters). After much googling and screaming (I'm a linux noob) it occurred to me to search http://packages.ubuntu.com. No hits under Karmic but it does surface in the Jaunty (9.04) repository.
So, is it safe for me to add the Jaunty repository and install the Jaunty version of this library or am I out of luck?
