Question multilib on Zenwalk


Does Zenwalk support multilib or do i need to follow the same instructions as this documentation from Slackware Docs to get it working ?

Well, it has been a few years since I was A Zenwalker.

But my understanding

Zenwalk is a Desktop focused Linux distribution founded by Jean-Philippe Guillemin. It is based on Slackware with very few modifications at system level making it 100% compatible with it
But I can be wrong at times. So since I am not a current Zenwalker. I cannot say for sure. But it sure seems so.

There shouldn't be any problem applying Alien multilib cookings on zenwalk.

I personally never tried multilib, neither on Zenwalk or Slackware.
