32 bit firefox on x86-64


A very popular question these days given that Macromedia, Java etc. decide for their consumers that we don't need 64-bit versions of there famous plugins. The obvious solution for me was to install 32 bit firefox, but I am having a lot of trouble. The main procedure I have been following is here :

When I get to the point of installing firefox.i386 using yum, I get this wonderful message of error dependencies using yum:


Code:

  file /usr/share/man/man1/esdfilt.1.gz from install of esound-0.2.36-0.fc4.1 conflicts with file from package esound-0.2.35-5
Then I thought I could just remove esound with yum, little did I know that would involve taking out the major packages for KDE, a 136 of them to be exact, so I said no to that.
Can somebody help me figure out what is going on with esound.x86_64 and alsa?

What I would do is create a small chroot environment, install a fully functional 32-bit linux distro of your choice (gentoo would be good for this) there, and then anytime you need to be in 32-bit land, you can just use the chroot command to jump right in. : )
