Description Christian Japes 2007-12-06 08:23:25 EST
Description of problem:
I'm not really sure if this is a bug or intended to be as it is: The problem 
is that when doing a complete installation of RHEL4, both libidn for 32- and 
for 64-Bit get installed. The libidn-devel package instead is only installed 
for 64Bit (on a 64Bit Machine) which results in the fact that a link from 
libidn.so to libidn.so.11.4.6 is available in /usr/lib64 but not in /usr/lib. 
Can I savely install the 32-Bit package as well? Up to now I've only seen that 
there are identical files in the two libidn-devel packages but I haven't 
checked if they differ.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

The biarch development environment is only supported from RHEL 5 onwards, sorry.
libidn-devel happens to be a package which isn't biarch-safe; in RHEL 4, you can
only install either libidn-devel.i386 *or* libidn-devel.x86_64, but not both
