RE: how to force inclusion of i386 packages in x86_64 distro



I'm no expert, but I've seen this before building x86_64 boxes for Oracle.  You can include "rpm -i http://repo/i386/package.i386.rpm"; in %post.  The 'rpm -i' command will install them alongside their x86_64 counterparts.  I have not yet tried making a package group, but that strikes me as a great way to implement this.  Make a package group @deps of just these i386 rpms, then include @deps in your %packages section.

Hi--
I have an x86_64 install that I am doing, which needs to be sure that about 20 i386-flavored rpms of various shared libraries are included in the install as well.  Is there any way to force this in a regular kickstart file, if so, how?

Thanks
