Description Joseph Shraibman 2005-09-23 20:45:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Fedora/1.0.6-1.2.fc3 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
I have a 32 bit program that I need to run on my rhel 4 x86_64 install that won't run because only the 64 bit libraries are installed. Furthermore I can't install the 32 bit rpms on the cd because they conflict with the 64 bit rpms.

This is the same bug as bug 156331 but that doesn't emphasize the severity of the problem.  This is a big blunder not being able to have both the 32 bit and 64 bit libraries installed at the same time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a 64 bit system

Actual Results:  ./sanmgrd: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Additional info:

This is not just a problem with openssl, it is a problem for many libraries.

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2005-09-26 09:30:14 UTC
Both up2date -i --arch=i686 openssl or rpm -Uvh openssl-0.9.7a-43.2.i686.rpm
install without conflicts.

Could you please specify what exactly conflicts for you with output from rpm or

Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2005-09-26 09:32:36 UTC
Also note that bug 156331 is about development packages (openssl-devel in this
case) not about the library packages. Multilib development is currently not
supported because it is much more tricky than multilib environment for executables.

Comment 4 Tomas Mraz 2005-09-30 07:43:58 UTC
You must install the same versions for both 64bit and 32bit packages. Although
it could probably be seen as rpm's problem that it doesn't allow installing
different versions. But I think solving it could bring more complications than
would be solved.

Comment 5 Joseph Shraibman 2005-09-30 17:14:40 UTC
I can't.  I already used up2date to upgraded those libraries, and I can't get
the updated 32bit versions because they aren't on a public website I can
download them from.
