I had suse 64 installed and it would install apt due to dependendicies. I installed the whole thing just like you said. I then installed the 32 bit version and it installed the libraries with yast but will not install the mail file. Any ideas what could be going on. Yast when i download the file just pops up and then back down. When i manually try to do it it manually at command it tells me user richard does not exist a bunch of times then gives me the hash to 100 % then user richard doesnt again a few more times. I have no clue what is going on. I have tried all of your guides and nothing has worked because i cannot seem to get apt to work and yum doesnt have everythin (uwas using fedora 64.) I assume some of the problems stem from the 64 bit version not having all the same mess? All your help is much appreciated.
