Hello guys.

I need to install glibc.i686 to run the Oracle installer for Oracle Developer Suite 10g, which is only available at 32bits.

To run the ./runInstaller I need first to open a linux32 bash. After I run it, the process fails because the correct libs cannot be found. Sure, this is a x_64 box.

I did a research and found that the lib that I need is in glibc.i686 and many people report that they can have in their systems both x_64 and i686 versions of this box.

I tried but yum says that there are dependencies conflict and cannot finish the installation.

Here is the version of glibc currently installed:

[root@localhost Disk1]# rpm -q glibc
glibc-2.18-12.fc20.x86_64

Here is the output when I try to install the i686 version:

[root@localhost Disk1]# yum install glibc.i686 glibc-devel.i686
----------------------------------------------------------   

Transaction check error:

package nss-softokn-freebl-3.16.0-1.fc20.i686 is already installed
package glibc-2.18-12.fc20.i686 is already installed
file /sbin/ldconfig from install of glibc-2.18-12.fc20.i686 conflicts with file from package glibc-2.18-12.fc20.x86_64
file /sbin/sln from install of glibc-2.18-12.fc20.i686 conflicts with file from package glibc-2.18-12.fc20.x86_64

package glibc-devel-2.18-12.fc20.i686 is already installed

Below are the lines ADDED according to what was demanded.

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa glibc
glibc-2.18-12.fc20.x86_64
[root@localhost ~]# sudo package-cleanup --problems

I just tried to install these two packages, and I hadn't any problems. Why yum thinks that these two packages are already installed in your system ? What is the result of rpm -qa glibc ? Also sudo package-cleanup --problems may give us a clue. Please edit your question and add the results there.
