I386 deb build


#1

Hi,
thanks for Atom.

As there are build for debian x64, would you be so kind to also provide i386, for people running on older hardware (for instance Celeron M processor), aka non PAE kernel.

Thanks.

To my knowledge, there are no plans to make official 32-bit builds for Linux. I believe that some people have had success building from source, however.

I’ve just built an i386 version of the newest Atom on… Intel Atom (Atom running on Atom seems like a good idea).

Here’s deb file if you’re interested to try it http://akak.usermd.net/atom-1.1.0-beta1-i386.deb

There is a PPA for Ubuntu: https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/ubuntu/atom/+packages


#5

To be clear, there is not currently an official Atom PPA.

Of course.
And I never said there was an “official” PPA. I said there was “a PPA.” That was quite clear, and, this unofficial PPA is quite useful for people unable/unwilling to run 64-bit Linux.
And of course, it’s a great pity there’s no “official” 32-bit version from Atom/GitHub.
But that’s one of the things wrong with Atom, and a topic for another time :slight_smile:

Yes, you said there was “a PPA” which leaves unspecified its official or unofficial nature. Which is why I felt the need to specify it so that there was no question in others’ minds who might happen upon this topic days, weeks or months later.

I didn’t say it to be snarky. There has been some confusion in the past, so I put little notes like this in place to try to help prevent it.

Hello! If anyone is still interested in i386 build, I’ve just made one. My laptop died a week ago and I needed to work on older one for a few weeks.
