Question Question about programs compilation on Slack64 multilib.


I have the feeling that some programs that compiles fine on pure 64bit can't on 64-multib.

Using many scripts to build with the wonderful sbopkg, i noticed it's better to keep a 64-only machine for preparing packages.

Do someone else think that or did i screwed something somewhere ?

I can confirm this.

Example: E17 compiles fine on pure 64-bit. With multilib the EFL stuff still goes well, but the window manager build complains about unsatisfied dependencies. BTW, I am using SlackE17.

I had other programs with the same problem. Somehow, the multilib packages seem to modifiy search paths for certain libraries, I guess.
