I am running Kernel 2.6.18-92.1.18.el5 x86_64.
I need /usr/lib/libpython2.4.so.1.0 for virtualbox.
I have python-2.4.3-21.el5.i386.rpm installed which is supposed to provide it.
Can I just grab the rpm and take out libpython2.4.so.1.0 and just put
it in /usr/lib ?
Not sure how to do that.
I figured a sym-link would have the app not compile correctly (if at
all) with the 64-bit lib.

Tried yum with no luck:
yum localinstall -y --nogpgcheck VirtualBox-2.1.2_41885_rhel5-1.i386.rpm
--> Running transaction check
