The way multilib works is that mash will get all the *-devel packages
from i686 and add them to the x86_64 repository, along with all their
In your case, you apitrace package doesn't generate any -devel
If it did, mash would include it for multilib, and as the -devel
packages usually depend on the -libs package, the -libs would also get
Thanks for the explanation. Hmm so I suppose I was mistaken about
apitrace-libs.i686 being available on x86_64 in the past, since apitrace
never had a -devel package. Is there any other option short of
