    32 bits jdk from Oracle on 64-bits RHEL 6

    Willem Noorduin Newbie

      I have a 64-bits RHEL 6 server and I want to install the 32-bits jdk from Oracle, which comes as an executable. When I fire it up I end up with:

       

      [root@zeus opt]# ./jdk-6u27-linux-i586.bin

      Unpacking...

      Checksumming...

      Extracting...

      ./jdk-6u27-linux-i586.bin: ./install.sfx.4646: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

      Failed to extract the files.  Please refer to the Troubleshooting section of

      the Installation Instructions on the download page for more information.

       

      I know this is due to the 32-bits compatibility mode (which is obviously not present on my system). Back in the old days of RHEL 5, this was solved with yum install ia32-libs, or something along that line, but they seem to have renamed the package in RHEL 6.

       

      Does someone know the command to install the 32-biit compatibility (mode) layer on a 64-bit RHEL6 server ?
