    Suse 9.1 64-bit problems


    I'm a linux newb, but I have an AMD Athlon64, so I got the 64-bit version of Suse 9.1

    One problem: some 32-bit apps I'm trying to install from RPMS are automatically looking for libs under /usr/libs. I happen to have seen that most of my 64-bit packages (like SANE for instance) installed their libs under /usr/lib64.

    Is there some way to symlink these libs, or will I have compile everything with dependencies?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have _no_ idea if it will work or not but try

    ln -s /usr/lib /usr/lib64
