[trinity-devel] 32-bit openSUSE with TDE on death bed?

In just a few weeks, openSUSE will have no supported 32-bit "Distribution" 
release. Tumbleweed at that time will become the only supported 32-bit openSUSE 
version. According to the TDE wiki, there is no build of TDE for openSUSE 

While 42.2 was in development, I had several installations working with apparent 
success using the 42.1 TDE repos. So, with 42.2pre working as it did with 42.1 
repos, I decided to give a basic level TDE in a minimal X TW installation a try 
using the 42.2 repos[1].

Zypper didn't want to let me. For 42.2, is required by tqt-mt, but 
in TW, libmng only comes in the .so.2 flavor, so zypper wouldn't let me install 
TDM without "breaking". I told it to go ahead and break tqt-mt, and it proceeded 
to install.

TDM and TDE session seem to work just fine, but I have no idea whether it's 
because works just fine, or because libmng simply hasn't been called 
upon, or some other reason.

I have looked at but it's 
unclear to me just how the repos listed there might be preferable and/or useful 
to eliminate the "breakage" I'm experiencing, or how to improve the wiki to 
incorporate that message's content.
