Install 32 bit libs over top of 64 bit Fedora 13?


I'm running 64 bit Fedora 13, but I also need to install some 32 bit libs (libstdc++, libstdc++5, glibc, & libgcc). Is there one 32 bit gcc lib that has all I need & can I get yum to install it?

By "one ... lib", I expect you mean one package.

Does it matter whether you need more than one 32 bit package? It is easy to install 32 bit packages with yum and easy to find out which packages you need with a yum provides command.

this is why you have a /usr/lib and /usr/lib64

the 32 bit rpm's are auto installed in lib and the 64 bit rpm's in lib64

just look for them in yumex or the terminal yum
you should be able to "groupinstall" the 32 bit along side the 64 bit with no problems
