Currently we have a few systems that are running RHEL5.6 which I am in the process of updating to 5.11 through yum updates. The system has unfortunately some applications that are 32bit even though the system itself is x86_64.
The strange thing is that there is an identical system that has been updated without any problem at all from 5.6 to 5.11, same exact mirrored image almost!
When updating the current system, am getting all sorts of dependency issues with glibc so I modified the /etc/yum.conf file to
This got rid of the dependency issue however, now had depsolving prob with firefox-3.6.13-2.el5.i386.
How can I get around updating the box as I did for my other system? Is there a way I can simply uninstall the 32bit i386 version of Firefox cleanly and then install the latest 64bit through yum updates?
This is a little frustrating, and confusing as I had no issues with the previous identical system but not this one.
Can someone help out please?
