Installing Multilib allow the user to run 32-bit applications on 64-bit distributions of Archlinux. Multilib creates a directory containing 32-bit instruction set inside the folder /lib32/ which 32-bit binary applications may need when executed.

Directory Structure

A 64-bit version of Archlinux with multilib installed follow a directory structure similar to Debian. 32-bit compatible libraries are located inside /usr/lib32/ and native 64-bit libraries are located inside /lib/ and /usr/lib/.
