Mageia tries to be an LSB compliant distribution. In Mageia-1, we support LSB-4.1. Installation of the "lsb" keystone package should pull in all necessary requirements for an LSB compliant application.

The current packaging also supports a bi-arch setup. On x86_64 you can install lsb-lib and lib-core-lib from the i586 repos (in addition to the x86_64 packages), and you will gain support for 32bit LSB compliant applications.

The LSB Workgroup does continual testing of distributions against the standard, and at the time of this writing Mageia is getting quite good results (all registered failures are not unique to Mageia and are believed to be either test or upstream issues):
