-Excellent and well written guide, thank you very much!  My only suggestion is to put a note somewhere that after setting up multilib, it may be necessary to reinstall NVIDIA drivers, otherwise things like wine tend to crash. \\  --- // Andy, Mon Sep 7 14:11 UTC 2009 //+Excellent and well written guide, thank you very much!  My only suggestion is to put a note somewhere that after setting up

 +Thanks for the hint Andy. I added an extra "Caveats" section in the main article to reflect this.\\ --- // Eric, Mon Sep  7 15:25:09 UTC 200 //

 +Thanks for the guide. I managed to install wine with this guide. One small comment though: "convertpkg-compat32 /path/to/mesa-7.5-i486-1.txz" does not work, the correct command is "convertpkg-compat32 -i /path/to/mesa-7.5-i486-1.txz".

 +Thanks for great job.

 +I tried to compile transmission torrent client for i486 and met with trouble:
 +/usr/include/curl/curlbuild.h contain this definition:
 +>156-/* The size of `long', as computed by sizeof. */
 +>157:#define CURL_SIZEOF_LONG 8
 +Therefore some headers are not arch independent. It was bad surprise for me.)
 +As temporary solution I had installed a curl-7.19.6-i486-1.txz package from slackware32-13.0 and compiled transmission successfully.

 +Thanks Eric, your solution is simply great!
 +I just want to signal that i had to add the line <key>/usr/lib/seamonkey</key> to the file <key>/etc/ld.so.conf</key> to make a 32 bit program that need libnss3.so to work on my brand new multilib system.
 +Maybe it would be nice to add this information to your otherwise perfect wiki.
