help installing RPM on RHEL 5.9

Link to this post 18 Sep 13

Hello. I am trying to install an RPM package on a 32 bit RHEL 5.9 system, and the install fails a dependency check...

error: Failed dependencies:
libc.so.6()(64bit) is needed by uptimeagent-6.0.0-1.x86_64
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit) is needed by uptimeagent-6.0.0-1.x86_64
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3)(64bit) is needed by uptimeagent-6.0.0-1.x86_64

Is this telling me that I need 64bit libraries installed on this 32bit system? Not sure how I would resolve this?

Thanks so much!

It looks to me like it's telling you that the package you're trying to install is 64 bit.

uptimeagent-6.0.0-1.x86_64 is looking for 64 bit versions of GLIBC If you're trying to install uptimeagent, look for the version that has i386 in it name.

Thanks for the reply...

That was my assumption, but support was telling me that this package should work... Regardless, I grabbed an older version of the RPM and it installed fine.

Thanks for the sanity check!! :)
