Per IRC chat, below are my thoughts on what needs to be changed.


So, it looks like sgfxi is still trying to install the ia32-libs metapackage, but that has been dropped in favor of full access to 32-bit packages on Debian and like systems.

First, foreign architectures can be checked like so:
:: Code ::
$ dpkg --print-foreign-architectures

Like above, if i386 is printed, then 32-bit packages are enabled. If not, the following command must be run: dpkg --add-architecture i386

After an apt-get update, the following command will install all the mesa opengl packages that will generate the necessary folders and symlinks for the emul compatibility directory to work:

apt-get install libegl1-mesa:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libglapi-mesa:i386 libwayland-egl1-mesa:i386

From here on out, the logic added previously to sgfxi with the /emul directory should continue to work.
