Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 426338
FutureFeature: lib directory names
Last modified: 2013-01-09 20:46:21 EST
Description of problem:
In Fedora 8 x86-64 lib directories are /usr/lib and /usr/lib64. It might be more
convenient and provide more compatibility with libraries like alsa if directory
names are /usr/lib32 and /usr/lib (for 64 bit).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I don't see how this can possibly help. It makes it so that you can't install
32bit packages on 64bit without rebuilding them to be "32 on 64" style.
I'm asking for this because many libs when I type 'make install' are installed
into /usr/lib without checking system architecture. They are compiled for 64 but
installed into 32bit lib directory and that is obviously wrong.
that's because you're likely doing it wrong. But bugzilla isn't a support
channel. I would recommend you take this issue up on one of the Fedora mailing
lists or forums, for information about how to properly compile software on 64bit
