64-bit System Setup

A 64-bit binary is available, but Pharo 32-bit requires a bit of extra setup on 64-bit systems. Once your system is set up, you should be all set with the standard downloads above. While we obviously can't provide instructions for every version of every distribution, below we list some of the most common cases. If you encounter a problem not addressed below, ask for help on our very friendly user mailing list

Ubuntu 14.04 and Later

Since the ia32-libs package is no longer loadable on these systems, you can follow the instructions for Debian 8.


The following is known to work in Debian (most recently tested in 7.8 wheezy) and older Ubuntu (e.g. 12.04) systems.

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

The installation in Debian 8 Jessie 64bits requires some operations.

 sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 
 sudo apt-get update 
 sudo apt-get install libx11-6:i386 
 sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 
 sudo apt-get install libfontconfig1:i386 
 sudo apt-get install libssl1.0.0:i386 


You can always build the VM from the sources. Feel free to ask questions on the users mailing list.
