Description of problem:
Our RHEL4u3 on PPC64 box has the following installed:


Note that the ppc64 versions of the *devel* packages are not there. This effect
of this is that we're missing the following libraries required for Application

When I say "Application Server" above, I meant the "Oracle" Application Server.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2007-03-15 20:11:15 UTC
I'm actually changing this to be against "distribution" since that's where the
fix would actually be.  No need for separate BZs for each component.

Comment 7 Mike McLean 2007-05-07 19:45:53 UTC
Based on a quick look, these -devel packages seem to be multilib safe, and I
don't think they will pull anything else in.

We need the following files available on our RHEL4 PPC64 box:
Whatever versions of the rpms that include these, we don't care.

Comment 19 Mike McLean 2007-05-14 20:36:43 UTC
The requested packages are now available from RHN. You can install them with
this command:
$ up2date -i db4-devel expat-devel gdbm-devel  --arch ppc64

Comment 20 Michael Moon 2007-05-14 20:56:17 UTC
Will this be part of RHEL4 Update5 or Update6? Thanks.

Comment 21 Mike McLean 2007-05-14 21:06:02 UTC
Yes, this change will also be applied in 4.6.  That is being tracked in bug 239993.
