I have a recommendation for 32-bit libraries on 64-bit systems: Now, some libraries are available on 64-bit systems as lib32* but these are very few. To improve this situation, I think that we can organise the library packages as follows: For a library with soname libfoo.so.1, we can make the following packages: libfoo1 - /usr/lib/libfoo.so.1 lib32foo1 - /usr/lib32/libfoo.so.1 libfoo-dev - /usr/lib32/libfoo.so /usr/lib/libfoo.so /usr/include/foo.h libfoo-dev depends on libfoo1 | lib32foo1 (if one of them aren't installed, left the .so link as a dead link) libfoo-shared - architecture-independent files of libfoo (excluding development files) This should be implemented as a build template to make all library packages use this organisation scheme. I think this should be implemented after the release of Squeeze. -- Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments. See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/no-word-attachments.html
