This page describes the simplest way to build an x86 (32-bit) Linux OpenVisualizer simulation module on a Debian Linux x86_64 (64-bit) host.

We wish to reuse the standard, SCons-based firmware build as simply as possible so that it may be performed in an automated way, for example with Travis-CI. A chroot is not necessary. Instead we download the Python source and build it for x86require a 32-bit Python library and include files, so we build it from source. Then we use the generated shared library and its include files to create the simulation module in the usual way with SCons. We must pass extra parameters to SCons to specify an x86 build.
