How to install 32-bit libs on a 64-bit Linux system

Package ia32-libs is not available, but is referred to by another package.

Some Linux apps are built using a 32-bit architecture and so to run them on a 64-bit system you will need to add the necessary 32-bit libraries to your Linux distribution.

Bash:
root@cana:~# apt install ia32-libs

Package ia32-libs is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
  lib32z1 lib32ncurses5

E: Package 'ia32-libs' has no installation candidate
root@cana:~#
Solution: apt install lib32z1

On older Linux distribution, we install ia32-libs, but on newer Linux distribution, install lib32z1 instead (they're the same) :)

This package is required if you want to run SHOUTcast Distributed Network Audio Server (DNAS) v1.9.8 on today's modern 64-bit Linux system.
