Unhappy Installing libXp.so.6 in Linux 2.6


Hye,

I'm new here n I'm lost.

My problem is "Error while loading shared library libXp.so.6. Cannot open shared object file. No such file or directory."

So, I want to install libXp.so.6 in my Linux 2.6 i686.

I tried using #sudo yum install libXp.so.6 but it took a very long time to finish the installation, so I quit the process. I think this is due to the library file is for i386.

Did I do the right procedure since my Linux is old version.

Is there any other way?

I really need your help. Thank you.

What is the name and VERSION of the linux Operating system you are using ?
there is NO operating system called " Linux 2.6 i686."

now there is an old kernel version that is 2.6
but the 2.6 version of the kernel came out is 2003 .
11 years ago

but the current older version in RHEL 6.5 is 2.6.32

Code:
I tried using 
#sudo yum install libXp.so.6
that command will NOT work it is not stated correctly
and should have errored with an error " there is no package called libXp.so.6 available ,nothing to do "

Quote:
but it took a very long time to finish the installation,
it would because that command will not install anything

it should have been
Code:
su -
yum install libXp
the CAPITAL X is needed !!!!! in the name
