How to install 32-bit version of libXp on x86_64 system (FC5)


All:

I've recently installed the x86_64 version Fedora Core 5. Apparently I need to install the 32-bit libXp package to resolve the libXp.so.6 dependencies required by 32-bit Java applications (see http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=475949 for my other post regarding this).

The question is: How can I install the 32-bit version of the libXp package if I already have the 64-bit version installed? I've tried "yum install libXp-1.0.0-2.2.i386.rpm", but it says there's nothing to do.

My understanding is that both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of the libraries should be able to co-exist.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Steve Rosburg

Try; yum install libXp-1.0.0-2.2.i386

Reason; libXp-1.0.0-2.2.i386.rpm is a filename while libXp-1.0.0-2.2.i386 is a package name.

Or you can try to download both libXp-1.0.0-2.2 packages to a common location where they are the only rpm packages and install them both at the same time;

rpm -Uvh libXp-1.0.0-2.2*.rpm --force

The use of the force switch is not to be used except in cases like this. It is need since you already have the x86_64 version installed.
