Summary : The GNU libc libraries.
Description :
The glibc package contains standard libraries which are used by
multiple programs on the system. In order to save disk space and
memory, as well as to make upgrading easier, common system code is
kept in one place and shared between programs. This particular package
contains the most important sets of shared libraries: the standard C
library and the standard math library. Without these two libraries, a
Linux system will not function.

My problem is when i trying to install any softwares , this error comes:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit) is needed by ......... 

# rpm -ivh /OS_BACKUP/rhl_cd2/RedHat/RPMS/vim-minimal-6.3.046-
0.40E.7.x86_64.rpm
warning: /OS_BACKUP/rhl_cd2/RedHat/RPMS/vim-minimal-6.3.046-
0.40E.7.x86_64.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID db42a60e
error: Failed dependencies:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit) is needed by vim-minimal-6.3.046-0.40E.7.x86_64


Please suggest me from where i can download the dependencies to install this 
software?

Why on earth would x86-64 packages be installable on ppc64 systems?
