[Solved] gcc-multilib alongside gcc?

Hi everyone. Apologies if this has been asked before, I've been searching around for a while and have not found an answer yet.

Is it at all possible to have both gcc and gcc-multilib installed on x86_64 at one time? Pacman complains about conflicts between the two if you attempt to install both. If there are actual file conflicts, would it be possible to install gcc-multilib to a location such as /opt, and would this remedy the conflicts?

Cheers!

Why do you want to do so? gcc-multilib fully qualifies as gcc with additional capabilities. You will most probably get conflicts if you use both in parallel.


To know or not to know ...

Hi, thanks for the quick reply. I was under the impression that gcc-multilib was only capable of compiling multilib packages, and I don't want to give up my ability to compile native 64bit packages as well. Is that not the case?

Edit: I've just found https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=102828 which seems to answer my question, in that "gcc-multilib includes just about every architecture, which is why it's 68 MB instead of about16". That's awesome, it seems "multilib" in my mind was associated with lib32 packages only, instead of multiple architectures. Thank you for helping me figure this out!
