package x is intended for a x86_64 architectur

I recently upgraded my AMD64 machine with openSuse 11.0 and I am installing,
with limited success, Kino, Cinelerra, and the programs they require.

A message I get frequently from rpm is

package xxx.yyy.zzz is intended for a x86_64 architecture

According to Yast and rpm --version, I’m running

I read the post at
Two Rpm Managers - One Is I586 The Other X86_64 - openSUSE Forums

and, again, according to Yast, the i586 version is not installed.

Can anyone help? I want to be able to edit video, and I don’t have the $$$ for a Mac and Final Cut Pro.

Thank you.

I don’t have a 64-bit pc, but I had thought zypper looks after this automatically?

If it were me, I would 1st setup my repositories with OSS, NON-OSS, Update and Packman only per the guidance here:
Repositories/11.0 - openSUSE-Community
Setup only 11.0 repositories, and setup ONLY those 4 repositories. ie ONLY OSS, NON-OSS, Update and Packman. No others. None. OK ? (If you need others, they can be installed and immediately removed afterward on an adhoc “as and if” required basis).

Once your repositories are setup, then in a konsole / gnome-terminal simply type “su” to get root permissions and type:
zypper install cinelerra kino
and the dependencies and architecture should be automatically sorted for you.

I also recommend you try kdenlive … ie …
zypper install kdenlive

If I have this wrong, perhaps a 64-bit user could quickly chime in and correct my mistake. Many thanks!

Could you please post the output of:

uname -a

Thank you.
