Re: X includes - fc5 x86_64



For those interested to downgrade their firefox.x86_64 to 32 bits, here is
what I did to achieve that:

a) Downloaded the latest firefox binaries from http://www.getfirefox.com/

b) Tried to install in /usr/local but failed:

[user kineto firefox]$ ./firefox
./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[user kineto firefox]$ sudo yum install libstdc++
Password:

[user kineto firefox]$ rpm -qa

libstdc++-4.1.1-i386
libstdc++-4.1.1-x86_64
libstdc++-devel-4.1.1-x86_64

[user kineto firefox]$ sudo yum install compat-libstdc++ Loading

c) Then I manually downloaded and installed (from RPM-Pbone)
compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-56.fc5.i386.rpm :

[user kineto ~]$ wget -c
ftp://ftp.uni-bayreuth.de/pub/redhat.com/fedora/linux/core/updates/5/i386/compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-56.fc5.i386.rpm

[user kineto ~]$ sudo rpm -Uvh compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-56.fc5.i386.rpm
Preparing...                ###########################################
[100%]
   1:compat-libstdc++-33    ###########################################
[100%]

That is a mirror of fedora core, so I don't know why my Yum did not find
and installed ... and I dont know how to setup a Yum i386.repo in a x86_64
system.

This try just did not work:

[user kineto yum.repos.d]$ more fedora-core-i386.repo
[core]
name=Fedora Core 5 - i386
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/5/i386/os/
mirrorlist=http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/fedora-core-5
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY

[core-debuginfo]
name=Fedora Core 5 - i386 - Debug
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/5/i386/debug/
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY

[core-source]
name=Fedora Core 5 - Source
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/5/source/SRPMS/
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY
[user kineto yum.repos.d]$

d) After compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-56.fc5.i386.rpm install, just put the
path in my /home/user/.bashrc file:

PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/firefox; export PATH

source /home/user/.bashrc

e) and Voila ! firefox 2.0 (32 bits) is up and running in my FC5_x86_64
box. I can see/use websites with flash now.

That would be great if fedora developers could provide more infos/tips on
how to solve dependencies in a mixed system : x86_64 and i386, that might
be a nightmare for x86_64 users.
