== Multilib page re-written ==
#redirect [[Talk:Official repositories]]
Hi! I erased the old page since everything was out of date and then I wrote all I know about Multilib. Please revert my edit if you believe it was unnecessary to do so.
The current content is written so a beginner with basic computer knowledge will understand the purpose of multilib. I am a beginner and I was reading the Beginner's Guide when I stumbled upon a link to this outdated article. I didn't know what multilib was, but after reading [http://www.redhat.com/magazine/009jul05/features/multilib/ this article from Red Hat], I understand it better. The article currently reflects my findings in the above article and [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1103220#p1103220 this forum post] where I asked what Directory Structure Multilib for Arch Linux makes use of. However, this wiki does not have the [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Cite Cite extension] nor seems to have the References extension installed, so I don't know how to link to these articles as my source. The [[Help:Editing]] article does not make any mention on how to do footnotes or references either. Your help is greatly appreciated!

:In addition I suggest renaming the page [[Multilib]] (currently redirecting to the current [[Multilib Project]] name). Also perhaps merge the stuff under [[Arch64 FAQ#Multilib Repository - Multilib Project]]. -- [[User:Vadmium|Vadmium]] ([[User talk:Vadmium|talk]]) 01:17, 18 May 2012 (UTC).
::Good idea moving the page to [[multilib]], I've already done that. Also merging [[Arch64 FAQ#Multilib Repository - Multilib Project]] seems reasonable. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 11:57, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
=== Footnotes ===
I think the inline links you made above are a good enough start. If you really want clickable footnotes you could try emulating their [[Wikipedia:Template:Ref]] family of templates, but I’d rather keep it all inline, or as a simple list at the bottom of the page. The only thing I would say is to include a bit of context in the linking; perhaps something like “[http://www.redhat.com/magazine/009jul05/features/multilib/ 64-bit computing: Co-existing in a 32-bit world]” in ''Red Hat Magazine'', or [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1103220#p1103220 Reply by Wonder] to “Archlinux Multilib Directory Structure” thread. -- [[User:Vadmium|Vadmium]] ([[User talk:Vadmium|talk]]) 01:17, 18 May 2012 (UTC).
:For referencing sources, it's fine to just keep it simple and list them in the "See also" section ([[Help:Style#"See also" sections]]) ;) -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 12:00, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
== Cross compiling gcc ==
When we install {{pkg|gcc-multilib}}, it is in conflict with the "classic" {{pkg|gcc}}. It would be great to have a cross compiling gcc like for mingw32, right?
Thanks. -- [[User:Babali|Babali]] ([[User talk:Babali|talk]]) 04:19, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
== Merge with official repositories page ==
There's not much here other than how to enable and disable. There's actually more content about the testing repository and it's on the [[official repositories]] page. So I propose to merge this page's content with [[official repositories#multilib]].  -- [[User:Rdeckard|Rdeckard]] ([[User_talk:Rdeckard|talk]]) 19:50, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
