Devel is NOT meant to satisfy runtime dependencies or for long term use on general purpose machines. # dnf install almalinux-release-devel # dnf install almalinux-release-devel

AlmaLinux has a Vault (opens new window) repository that provides packages and isos for previous AlmaLinux OS versions. Also, the Vault repository contains 32-bit packages for the latest stable version to build. Vault and other AlmaLinux repositories are available on repo.almalinux.org (opens new window).
