Description Jerry Jaskierny 2004-11-03 16:51:18 EST
Description of problem:
32-bit versions of 'gtk2-devel' do not exist, only 64-bit.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Check the ISO install image for the platform and see it not there.

Additional info:
This makes users unable to use Mozilla's firefox, as it looks for
32-bit libraries.

We do not do multilib -devel packages, since they are by definition
only needed for development. If firefox really needs gtk2-devel
something is wrong.
Comment 2 Jerry Jaskierny 2004-11-04 15:25:16 EST
Ah, that's understandable.  But I /did/ notice some lib packages that
were build for x86_64 *and* i386.  Why is that?

When firefox was run, it complained that it needed
`libgtk-x11-2.0.so'.  A quick check showed that it existed in
`/usr/lib64', but not `/usr/lib'.  A quick check showed that those
libraries were found in the "gtk2-devel" package.
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2004-11-04 16:15:05 EST
firefox should be happy with libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 which is included in
the gtk2 package
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2004-12-16 11:39:48 EST
If not NOTABUG, this must be a firefox issue
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2005-01-06 05:34:21 EST
This bug is confusing.  Why is it reported against RHEL3?  firefox is
not a supported component of RHEL3.

Bug reporter mentions i386 and x86_64, but Summary indicates that this
is an ia64 problem?

Unless Jerry can explain the issue better, this should be closed NOTABUG.

Due to lack of reply in almost two months, closing this NOTABUG as per comment #5.
