I am trying to install both a 32-bit and 64-bit version of the JRE packages (rpm) on a Redhat Linux 6.2 server. All attempts to install one or the other first or trying to install one of the kits in a different path all fail. It seems that the installation logic knows that there is another version of JRE installed.
# I have tried installing these in different order to no avail: yum install jre-1.6.0_32-fcs.i586 yum install jre-1.6.0_32-fcs.x86_64.rpm
# Installing in a different root path:
*yum --installroot=/usr/java/jre1.6.0_32-64 install jre-1.6.0_32-fcs.x86_64.rpm*
It seems that others like yourself would have run into this problem before. I would appreciate any suggestions on what has worke for you in the past.
What did you have to do to install both so that both 32 and 64 bit libraries and binaries are available?
Is there anything special the application needs to do relating to this?
