Maemo scratchbox on amd64

So it seems the maemo scratchbox refuses to install on amd64, has anyone succeded in doinng so? Can i fool the script, or do i need to run a virtual machine with linux i386 inside and then run the scratchbox inside that?

This is the only tutorial I've found so far: http://koo.fi/tech/2008/01/05/scratchbox-installation-under-32-bit-chroot-on-64-bit-ubuntu/

But I think there should be an easier way than that, using getlibs and that kind of magic :P

I think the key is using setarch when running the install script.

That's what worked for me.

chroot ?

It's more secure to run scratchbox in a 32 bit virtual machine.

I prepended the 'linux32' command to the command line calling the scratchbox install script. Then the installation worked and I could start the n810 in scratchbox. Note that I'm using openSUSE 11.0 x86_64 on Intel Core 2 Duo so YMMV.
