Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Hi Thorsten,

to my knowledge the native libs should go into lib. Therefore, on a 64bit system, the self compiled 64bit libraries should be installed to lib and not lib64. Non-native libraries, like 32bit ones for compatibility reasons, should go into lib32. This impression of mine seems to be supported by the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, if I understand it correctly:

   /lib : Essential shared libraries and kernel modules

       Specific Options

   /lib<qual> : Alternate format essential shared libraries (optional)

On Debian it is handled the same way, there is no lib64 anywhere on amd64.

Anyhow, this doesn't cover Windows systems, I have no idea how it is handled there. I will edit the text respectively.
