Dear Friends,

Can these 64bit puppy run 32bit applications?
1. Quirky Xerus 8.3 for x86_64
2. Xenialpup64 CE 7.5

[I see Fatdog can.]

Please help.

Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

If you mean ALL 32 bit applications, the answer is no. Some 32-bit apps will run in some 64-bit Puppies. Which ones? You'll just have to try them and see.

Yes, get the 32-bit SFS.

Following up Jamesbond's post. With Xenialpup64, to obtain the 32-bit compatibility SFS open a terminal and type sfsget. After you load it, open a terminal and type ldconfig. That's a small "EL". If the prompt returns immediately, do it again. There should be an noticeable lag before the prompt returns because the 32-bit environment --which takes up almost as much space as Puppy's Core-- has to be created. Don't forget to Save. To become effective, a re-start or even a reboot may be required.

I also don't know about Quirky. But both OSes are built using binaries from Xenial Xerus. So it is possible that the 32-bit compatibility SFS for Xenialpup64 may also work if Quirky doesn't have its own. If Xenialpup64's SFS is loaded into Quirky I don't know how to test* for anything missing or resolve any problems. The 32-bit compatibility SFS consists mostly of libs and a modification of /etc. The only 'bin' file is a script to run apulse.

* Perhaps if you have an application which starting from a terminal under Xenialpup (the 32-bit version) shows no errors, trying to start it under Quirky Xerus via terminal may give you a hint of why it isn't working.

Afterthought -- 32-bit applications created for Xenialpup (32-bit) are more likely to run under Xenialpup64 with compatibility layer loaded than those applications created for other 32-bit puppies.
