Description Nux 2014-05-04 01:18:15 UTC
Hello,

Could you guys also build the 32bit version of this package?
Certain applications (such as Skype) require it.

Thanks in advance!

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2014-05-04 02:28:09 UTC
qtwebkit should be multilib'd already, does this not work?

yum install qtwebkit.i686

Comment 2 Nux 2014-05-04 17:57:02 UTC
It doesn't:

yum --disablerepo=nux-dextop --enablerepo=epel install qtwebkit.i686
Loaded plugins: changelog, langpacks
No package qtwebkit.i686 available.
Error: Nothing to do

I can't find it here either:
http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/beta/7/

Had to build it myself in a F19 mock chroot so Skype is usable.

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2014-05-04 18:10:12 UTC
Ah, I think I understand now.

It looks like RHEL7 (and by extention EPEL-7) simply does not support 32bit, the only archs/platforms supported include: x86_64, ppc64

Comment 6 Nux 2014-05-04 18:37:22 UTC
Well, I understand, but closing this bug doesn't make the issue go away.

EL7 is still providing loads of 32bit RPMs, because they know it's needed.

cat /etc/redhat-release 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 7.0 (Maipo)

uname -a
Linux laptopelle 3.10.0-121.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Apr 8 10:48:19 EDT 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

rpm -qa|grep -c i686
121

"Rhel7 does (support multilib), but there is not enough i686 that epel can do multilib, so epel7 is not going to support multilib at all."

There you have it.

Comment 8 Nux 2014-05-09 16:40:30 UTC
Well, thanks for trying. At least we know something clear. Thanks!

I'll continue to provide my own 32bit package built on F19 for other people.

Comment 10 Michael Torrie 2014-08-21 04:01:11 UTC
Very lame. I can understand if it's simply due to lack of manpower.  I was really hoping to use EL7 with EPEL as my desktop OS, but it looks like that might not be possible.  I'll continue to use F19 packages for now, but in the near future that's not going to be viable.  Guess I need to manually build i686 rpms.
