Hi, Ive got things running reasnably okay at the minute, however as mentioned Im using fedora core 2 and sometimes its necessary to install certain apps as 32 bit as some of the time they are more stable.
For instance for a while there I was having hassle installing DC++ on linux , so i looked around and found LDC, the thing is the 64bit version was only in development but the i386 32 bit rpm was stable. The problem with installing the i386 version was that it required qt and was conflicting with my 64 bit version qt libs so I forced the rpm and installed it into a folder 32bit/qt the added /32bit/qt/lib to ldconf.so and then ldcc installed and is working well. I no what Im saying is a slight diversion from my original post but it is to highlight my reasoning behind wanting an efficient way to install 32 and 64 bit apps on the fedora core 2 as occasionally it is required. Also Is there any way of telling what apps are 32bit and what are 64 , in reference to the apps installed during the fedora core 2 initial installation?
