  1. #1

    Default 32bit .rpms running on 64bit machine?

    Hello,

    What would be the easiest way to run 32bit .rpm files on openSUSE 11.2 64bit machine?

    just use YaST to install it...32 bit programs usually run just fine in
    a 64 bit system (but not the other way around)

    if the rpm is from a trusted source, just download it, right click it
    and select "Actions" then "Install with YaST"...if possible it will
    solve all dependencies, install the program, add it to your menu and etc..

    ps: don't ever download from an unknown, untrusted source...always
    seek within the openSUSE repos first..

    I'm trying to install SipXecs but, as mentioned there are only 32bit packages sipXecs Development Build Directory /pub/sipXecs/4.0.4/SUSE/11.1/i386/

    i already answered that question!
    it is OKAY to run 32 bit rpms on a 64 bit machine...it will run just
    fine....just download and install with YaST as i told you on 9 Jan..

    i do not know what you are asking of me by giving that web site page..

    i can not tell you what you need to download...YOU need to read the
    documentation for sipXecs (whatever that is) and decide what you
    download...

    AFTER you have downloaded all that you need then install them, using
    YaST as said twice..

    by the way, the sipXecs folks should have some information on what to
    download and in which order to install it..

    it could be that when you try to install that YaST will tell you it
    cannot because of missed packages, those are called "dependencies",
    that is package A depends on package B being installed to run...it
    will tell you what is missing and then you can use YaST to install
    those packages Bs, THEN go back and install the package A which
    depends on having the B...

    see?
