Poor Yum Repo: OracleLinux6

I’m now working on an Oracle Linux 6U1 x64 box, planning to inst new 11R2 image.

Problem hit here.

we can see that glibc.i686 <tip: just add arch. tag to install related pkg.> cannot be resolved  for glibc-common label check failure.

it’s funny but not worse, ORCL even doesn’t provide glibc-common.i686 package…

It should be a bug here….


1. pull glibc package from weburl glibc-2.12-1.25.el6.i686.rpm.
2. # yum localinstall glibc-2.12-1.25.el6.i686.rpm
3. # yum install unixODBC-devel unixODBC-devel.i686
4. continue…

Poor Yum repo…especially on x64 platform day’s, mixing with i686 libs.
