I am attempting to install boinc-client on a few Ubuntu Server machines. However there's one problem: With both depending on the same libraries (just different architectures), one requires X while the other one doesn't?

Both servers a fairly vanilla with not much installed besides the base image. Both are running Ubuntu Server 11.10. Command run was sudo apt-get install boinc-client

32 bit machine

The following NEW packages will be installed:
boinc-client libcurl3

64 bit machine

The following NEW packages will be installed:
boinc-client fontconfig:i386 ia32-libs ia32-libs-multiarch:i386 lib32asound2 lib32bz2-1.0 lib32ffi6 lib32gcc1 lib32ncurses5

libxi6:i386 libxrender1:i386 libxss1:i386 libxt6:i386 libxxf86vm1:i386 qdbus:i386 x11-common

Why is there such a difference between the 64 bit and 32 bit versions? Both use the same libraries, so adding other nonsense doesn't make sense

It appears the bionic-client is a 32 bit application, and the 64 bit install is pulling in all the 32 bit libs to go with it.

i386 are 32 bit libs ( fontconfig:i386 )
