This goal comprises all the changes required to support compilation of binaries for multiple architectures on a single machine. This includes not only the usual amd64/i386 bi-arch systems but also any other combination, including cross-compiling environments for embedded systems.
The starting point is the Multi-Arch specification.
How to help
Join discussion with ideas, specially for the unsolved issues.
- Help development of affected packages
- Fix bugs which may be blocking those from going multi-arch.
All -dev packages of Multi-Arch:same libraries, should also be Multi-Arch:same
- Virtual provides should not conflict installation of foreign arch -dev packages
- Recommend to multiarch -dev package at the same time as multiarching the library
