Description of problem:
The distribution of RHEL 3WS for AMD64 lacks i386 versions of the
openmotif and openmotif-devel packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RHEL3WS on an AMD64.
2.Run or build an i386 program using libXm.
Have you released to RHEL3 up3?
I haven't seen any fix info regarding this issue from ERRATA.
A customer is asking this bug issue
Current status seems to be like this:
With the errata RHBA-2004:243 the i386 version of openmotif was
included in the AMD64 channel. There still is no corresponding
openmotif-devel package in the channel though.
Which means it is now possible to RUN a 32 bit Motif program, on
AMD64, but still not possible to BUILD one. Thus, the most serious
part of this report is addressed, while not all of it.
32-bit packages for openmotif21-2.1.30-8 are currently available for testing in
the RHEL 3 Update 4 beta channels on RHN.
I guess this was really two different problems from the beginning
(motif and motif-devel). But i am myself an advocate of the "one
problem per bugzilla" philosopy. The first, and most important, part
is resolved, so I'll close this case.
