Fedora Core 5's multi-lib environment was geared toward running 32bit apps,
and only a small number of packages were setup to be multi-lib.

In FC6, we're also targetting app development, and as such made some changes
to rpm and to our tree building software so that any package that has
a -devel subpackage will be considered multi-lib and brought into the tree.
If you wish to test this out, please try Fedora Core 6 Test 2.


HI Jesse, this is great news!  Thanks for the info.  I will be looking
forward to FC6 :)
