How to run 32bit binary on current ubuntu 64bit system?

+1 vote

I have some legacy binary code. Is there a way to run it on a current 64bit ubuntu system?

~$ file y
y: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.0.0, not stripped
~$ ./y
-bash: ./y: No such file or directory

You might get away by installing the 32bit libraries.
$ sudo apt-cache search ia32-libs
ia32-libs - ia32 shared libraries - transitional package
ia32-libs-multiarch - Multi-arch versions of former ia32-libraries
$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

I am wondering how - or more exactly where - umask is defined on a stock Ubuntu server system.

I have reactivated the root account. Here's the respective default umask for root and normal users:

Nomal User:

$ umask

Root User

$ umask

On RHEL/CentOS, these values are defined in /etc/bashrc and then in the individual ~/.bashrc files. How does Ubuntu handle this?
