Description Shannon Petry 2004-11-03 14:24:44 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7)
Gecko/20040803 Firefox/0.9.3

Description of problem:
There is NO 32bit library "libGLU.so".  

(identical to bug ID 119095 which is closed).

Upon investigation, here is what is found.

# ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU*
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       673038 Sep 15 05:59
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           13 Nov  3 11:02
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.so.1 -> libGLU.so.1.3
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           30 Oct 26 16:47
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.so.1.3 -> /usr/X11R6/lib64/libGLU.so.1.3

# file /usr/X11R6/lib64/libGLU.so.1.3
/usr/X11R6/lib64/libGLU.so.1.3: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, AMD
x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), stripped

I read the report for bug 119095, which was closed and should not have
been.  There should be an update which puts the missing library into
it's proper place and corrects the links in the 32bit directory that
should be pointing to a 32bit library.

If there is a site to download an updated version of RH WS AMD64, or
an RPM which would fix this problem, please point me to the site.  I
used new install media received 3 weeks ago from Sun Microsystems, so
assume this to be current. 

I installed the OS 2 times to ensure I did not do as the support tech
mentioned in bug 119095 and "rpm --force" install a different version.
 All that ran was RH install, and up2date on this system.

It is critical for 99% of my applications to have the 32bit library

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libGLU.so.1.3 (XFree86-Mesa-libGLU-4.3.0-35.EL)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install AMD64 RH workstation from media
2.  ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU*
3.  You will not find a 32bit version of libGLU on the system.

Actual Results:  As it was explained, no 32bit library for "libGLU.so"
is found on the OS.  locate shows libGLU in 2 locations
(/usr/X11R6/lib, and /usr/X11R6/lib64).  the /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.so
is a symbolic link to /usr/X11R6/lib64.

Expected Results:  I should have a 32bit library in the 32bit library
directory, and 64bit library in the 64bit library.

Additional info:

While priority is set to normal, if Redhat would like additional
licenses of AS and WS to be sold my customer must have working
versions of AMD64 Linux.  As it is now, openGL based applications will
not function in the AMD64 version of Redhat.

This problem is resolved by downloading and installing the 1386
Mesa-LibGLU*.rpm file matching the version installed for AMD_64.

The 32bit version should be installed by default, and needs to be
packaged in the AMD_64 distribution to resolve this issue.

Engineering Applications running OpenGL will not run currently in
64bit OpenGL, but will run in 32bit.  This includes ProE, MSC Patran,
Altair Hypermesh, and many many more.

Remember that the trees being build by most major vendors are not only
for *nix/Linux which can do 64bit, but Windows which can only do 32bit
(and even does a poor job at 32bit).

Vendors are not yet building 64bit graphic trees.
