Installing 32 bit RPMs on 64 bit Linux conflicts with 64 bit packages


Hi,

I'm using a 64 bit Linux server (OEL 6.1):

[root@dbserver ~]# uname -r
2.6.32-100.34.1.el6uek.x86_64


I was trying to install Oracle Database on this server that I realized the installer requires some 32 bit libraries. For instance it was looking for libXp.so.6 which existed under /usr/lib64, but not /usr/lib.
Even when I changed the installation script to look into lib64 for the library, it failed with an error from Java that it needs 32 bit and instead has found 64 bit.

I downloaded a bunch of 32 bit RPM packages and when I tried to install them, I got the error that a newer version of those packages is installed, which is not the case. Cause all previously installed packages are 64 bit. I was wondering why it thinks that 64 bit packages are newer version of 32 bit packages. And is there a way to solve this?

[root@dbserver ~]# rpm -ivh libXp-1.0.0-8.i386.rpm xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm xorg-x11-libs-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm expat-1.95.8-9.i386.rpm libXau-1.0.1-3.1.i386.rpm fontconfig-2.3.94-1.i386.rpm zlib-1.2.1.2-1.i386.rpm freetype-2.1.7-4.i386.rpm

install up to date versions of the i386 packages and you should be ok. different *architectures* of the same version will still have the same documentation etc., but not different *versions*.
