Scanner questions (32 and 64 bit question)

view story

http://crunchbanglinux.org – I use an Epson Perfection 3170 scanner. A nice scanner with decent quality.There is even some Linux support. Unfortunately, all that is provided is a 32-bit driver in an rpm package.I've found some instructions for 32-bit Ubuntu that I'm betting will work on #!.http://askubuntu.com/questions/49389/ru … ction-3170However, what I'm really wondering is how to run/use a 32 bit package on a 64 bit system. Is that even possible, or am I stuck using Virtualbox to scan? (HowTos)
