Also do you need lib32-expat for something particular?

open reflector-simple, try to find a new mirror.

expat is currently 2.4.6 but testing holds 2.4.7 …

and lib32 2.4.5 probably something about mirror is not good?


I don’t know/remember…

I need the 32bit libraries for CodeWeavers CrossOver - to run windows software on Linux
I am not sure about that one particular library mentioned.

Thank you - I added the worldwide in mirrors and it seems to be doing a lot of updating right now.
