32bit applications installed on 64bit, apt fails.


This is a weird problem. I have installed 32 bit applications on fedora using apt, my server is 64 bit. It wasn't my point to do so - I mistaked some mirrors..

Here is the output:
Code:
W: There are multiple versions of "libacl.32bit" in your system.

This package won't be cleanly updated, unless you leave
only one version. To leave multiple versions installed,
you may remove that warning by setting the following
option in your configuration file:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated { "^libacl.32bit$"; };

To disable these warnings completely set:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated-Warning "false";

W: There are multiple versions of "libselinux" in your system.

This package won't be cleanly updated, unless you leave
only one version. To leave multiple versions installed,
you may remove that warning by setting the following
option in your configuration file:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated { "^libselinux$"; };

To disable these warnings completely set:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated-Warning "false";

W: There are multiple versions of "audit-libs" in your system.

This package won't be cleanly updated, unless you leave
only one version. To leave multiple versions installed,
you may remove that warning by setting the following
option in your configuration file:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated { "^audit-libs$"; };

To disable these warnings completely set:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated-Warning "false";

W: There are multiple versions of "libselinux.32bit" in your system.

This package won't be cleanly updated, unless you leave
only one version. To leave multiple versions installed,
you may remove that warning by setting the following
option in your configuration file:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated { "^libselinux.32bit$"; };

To disable these warnings completely set:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated-Warning "false";
W: There are multiple versions of "libattr.32bit" in your system.

This package won't be cleanly updated, unless you leave
only one version. To leave multiple versions installed,
you may remove that warning by setting the following
option in your configuration file:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated { "^libattr.32bit$"; };

To disable these warnings completely set:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated-Warning "false";

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
I soo try to uninstall libattr.32bit, with this:

Code:
[root@fc41415 ~]# apt-get remove libattr.32bit
Reading Package Lists... Done

Selecting libattr.32bit#2.4.16-5 for 'libattr.32bit'

Soo.. I tried uninstalling libacl, with this result:

You are about to do something potentially harmful
To continue type in the phrase 'Yes, do as I say!'

And.. Now I am stuck..

Plz help

Hopefully you said no or did not enter the request phrase, if not and you allowed almost 300 packages to be removed then it is a good idea to re-install.

Apt is not any good at mixed mode environments and is not safe to use in this type environment as you now know, please use a newer version ofyum and one of the GUI interfaces if desired instead.

FYI: to uninstall 32-bit rpm packages by hand and leave the 64-bit counterpart is not hard, for example; rpm -e foo-1.2.3-4.i386
