Installing 32bit libs on x86_64bit installed fedora
trying to find out the yum install to get 32bit libs installed,
this is on a fedora9 x86_64
searched and found nothing specific to fedora and using yum....

the only i386 libs installed is

I need more,lets say all 32bit libs....

yum doesn't know about multilib.......

i thought maybe if i could do something like
yum install firefox.i386
and the dependencies should get the libs i'm after...
but theres no firefox.i386 package.....
maybe its called something else?

any ideas ?

A quick search found this - FC6 but might shed some light.

I did find that page...but its dated April 2007, probably why tips in there didn't work for me....thanks anyway

but guess what ? I just discovered that yum does wildcards !!

and this is what helped,
yum install libX11.386
yum install libXext.i386
yum install *libc.i386

this has now fixed vmware's error: Failed to connect to pipe

because some of vmware 64bit is using 32bit libs.
