64bit rpms vs the tarball
Question: when I search for rpms online I often find i386 rpms that have dependencies in Yast2 that prevent installation (the 64 bit software doesn't play nicely).
So if I want 64bit software can I just get the tarballs?
(I am capable of compiling them)
Do the binaries come in 64 and 32 bit-mode?
how can I convert 32 bit binaries to 64?
Could someone clear this up for me?
