Install 32 bit Apache on RHEL 5.x 64bit-OS

I've a request to install a 32bit Apache installation on RHEL 5.X. It should not be the RHEL bundled httpd server.

SoI downloaded a 2.x rpm, resolved all dependencies except 1:

libpq.so.3

libpq seems to be installed:

/usr/lib/libpq.so.4.1
/usr/lib/libpq.so.4
/usr/lib64/libpq.so.4.1
/usr/lib64/libpq.so.4

Any worky around?

Re: Install 32 bit Apache on RHEL 5.x 64bit-OS

Okay, here's what I did and satisfied a 3rd party software that needed 32bit Apache:

1.) Download Source Distribution of the latest 2.X Apache from apache.org

2.) Set up a 32bit RHEL Server

3.) Build Apache from sources:

./configure --prefix /usr/local/apache
./make
./make install
tar up the /usr/local/apache tree
copy to X86-64 RHEL Server
/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start
It Works! Appears on ort 80 http navigation as test.
Set up chkconfig and service
Done!


All's Kool in LinuxLand.

Still can;t understand why I can't install 32Bit Apache though on X86 RHEL 5.x FROM RHN repos.


HTH anyone that might have a similar need.
