That is NOT the latest version of glibc.i686 .. it is the version that
is in CentOS 5.8, but have been 4 updates to the CentOS-5.8 glibc since
The one thing you are going to need to do is to have the same version of
glibc.i686 that you have for glibc.x86_64.
If you really do have 2.5-81 and not glibc-2.5-81.el5_8.1 (or .2, .4, or
.7) then it should install just fine. I would bet you have a different
version of glibc.x86_64 ... what does this tell you:
rpm -qa | grep glibc | sort
(pay particular attention to see if there is a number after "-81")
And this is a requirement for any multi-lib package, not just glibc ...
one should use the same i[3,6]86 package version as the installed x86_64
version to get the install to work correctly.
