will 64 bit package support 32 bit OS


Hi All,

I am using 32 bit RHEL 6 on my VM. I deleted my repos by mistake and I want to restore them. Now I have a 64 bit RHEL 6. I wanted to know if the packages in it will support my 32 bit OS. Please advise

No, they won't. 64 bit packages need a 64 bit OS to function.
