Normally, installing 32 bit packages on 64 bit systems shouldn't be a problem. However, why do you want to do that? Is the 64-bit version of the database software not available? For example, it means that you will have to pull in 32-bit dependencies, hence the messages.

More pertinent, though, is the message that says that you don't have enough memory in /tmp to install the package. Have you addressed that?

Also, given that RHEL is a commercial product with support, why haven't you asked RHEL about this? They will be able to give you much better support.

Are you using RHEL 4.7 or RHEL 6.8? Your signature says 4.7 is why I'm asking and RHEL 4 is end of life.

As hydrurga is citing, you should be asking Redhat.

Do you have a licensed copy of RHEL? Are you using demo software? If so, then it is a 30-day trial. If you have a production machine, then best to keep the maintenance current for it and inquire of Redhat what they recommend for the particular software package you wish to install.

They can also help you wish clearing up space without causing problems, or advise if your hardware is extended too far to allow for installing any additional packages.

Can I recommend therefore that you install CentOS instead. You won't be able to update your RHEL system unless you have a licence and CentOS is, to all intents and purposes, the same beast.

The rest of your questions will hopefully be answered by the CentOS/RHEL/yum experts on LQ. However, you first need to determine why you want to download 32-bit packages if 64-bit versions are available. Also, you need to look at how much disk space your install is taking up (the df command will prove useful).

Distros have mechanisms for this and it's generally called multi-arch.

https://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch

Alternatively you can create a chroot and run the 32 bit software in the chroot. I used to do this for the five+ years it took java to come out with a 64 bit browser plugin.
