I am using 64-bit RPM's compiled by RedHat for RHEL5.2 . The 32-bit variants are installed I'll see if I can work out how to force it to use them.

Here are the versions involved, but be aware RedHat versions include backporting so it can be difficult to say exactly what is included:

Err RHEL5.2 is the latest stable I believe. RHEL5.3 may have been released. Not to be confused with RedHat 5.2 which is of course ancient :-)
