Can't install glibc.i686


Redhat 6.5

I'm trying to install the 32-bit version of glibc but I get the following:

I need the 32-bit libraries to run a 32-bit program provided by a 3rd party (in other words I can't recompile it for 64-bit). This is an fresh install of RHEL 6.5 and I'm at a loss. The complaints at the top are because I'm running this from home (i.e. not connected to work network and it can't reach the RHN satellite server - when I vpn in to work it so it can reach that server it still fails the same way).

I'm at a loss for what to try next. Any suggestions?

If you paid for subscription, you need to register the system to gain access to mirrors.
If you haven't paid try centOS it's free.

@DrFrost : Welcome to LQ.

You can use the identical "Redhat CentOS" repositories,
i.e. migrate to CentOS : http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/MigrationGuide

The problem was not access to repos. I can vpn into my work network and I then have access to the satellite repo. I did this and it failed in the same manner (this is my work laptop).

Regardless, I did a fresh install and it's working now so whatever I had inadvertently broken before is now fixed.

Thanks for the suggestions.
