Installing RHEL 7 with 32 bit support

Latest response

I am trying to find a way to install RHEL 7 with full 32 bit support. RHEL 6 - 64 would by default. I am installing from a usb key that has all of the rpms on it both 64 and 32 bit but when I run through the installation procedure there is no choice to install both 64 and 32 bit packages. Any ideas?
Thanks

There is no 32 bit version of RHEL7. Many libraries have a 32 bit version. To install i686 packages, you would need to specify that, otherwise yum presumes x86_64. When dependency handling, yum will grab i686 packages.

If you absolutely need a 32-bit version of EL7, you could give CentOS a try. As announced here, there is a beta release of CentOS Linux 7 for i686.

Thanks I will have to give that a try once it is passed beta.

It is helpfull
