Error: No Package Matching glibc.i686


I am installing VMWare on CentOS 5.1 (x86 64bit). When I run 'yum install gcc'
it fails with: Error: No Package Matching glibc.i686

Anyone know how to get around this?

Thanks!

Because the 32-bit packages is not part of the 64-bit directory structure so you need to make a CentOS32.repo file. Use your existing /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo file as your guide and make the changes. This is an example for the first entry;

Code:
[c5-base32]
name=CentOS-5
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=$i386&repo=os
gpgcheck=0
enabled=0
gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-centos5
Repeat for the rest and save then when done try again: yum install glibc glibc.i386 --enablerepo=c532*

Thanks Lenard that did it!

Now I am having trouble mounting a USB hard drive which is NTFS.

I need to mount it to move the VM images onto the CentOS file
system.

Cannot Mount Volume
The volume 'WD Passport2' uses the ntfs file system
which is not supported by your system.

This is totally the SOLUTION, not need to create any new repo file.

I was getting the same error, ran "yum update" and then I was able to install GCC using "yum install gcc-c++"
