trouble installing 32bit package on 64bit install


Hi,

environment:
2.6.9-89.ELlargesmp #1 SMP Mon Apr 20 10:43:12 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 8)

I am trying to install a 32 bit package on a 64 bit install. I don't get an error, it just does not install. This is the command I am using:

Verify:
rpm -V libaio-0.3.105-2.i386.rpm
package libaio-0.3.105-2.i386.rpm is not installed

Install (or so I thought)
rpm -Uvh libaio-0.3.105-2.i386.rpm --force --ignoreos --nodeps
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:libaio ########################################### [100%]

Verify:
rpm -V libaio-0.3.105-2.i386.rpm
package libaio-0.3.105-2.i386.rpm is not installed

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Lose the .rpm and the version numbers


rpm -V libaio

rpm -qa | grep libaio

rpm -qa --qf '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n' | grep libaio
