Just download the rpm to your system and then do "yum localinstall ${rpm}"

But what if the SW I use is 64-bit AND requires 32-bit ODBC driver?[/quote]
If the software is true 64-bit it should seemingly not require a 32-bit driver.

This means I am in a dead corner - so I understand, you propose in order to put everything together I should use 32-bit CentOS?

Anyway I found the rpm at [url=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/os/i386/Packages/mysql-connector-odbc-5.1.5r1144-7.el6.i686.rpm]centos mirror[/url].

Not sure now what to do.[/quote]
That has been nicely covered by [b]freethinker[/b] - IFF (if and only if) you require the i386 library.

[quote]
I really understood that 32-bit and 64-bit SW should not collide on 64-bit system (RHEL based) since it is a multilib system. Thus using double libraries: /usr/lib/ & /usr/lib64/ etc.[/quote]
As I said - no longer multilib by default, but many i386 packages are in the x86_64 tree for that purpose. It is likely that the package will not conflict with the 64-bit version. Please let us know if it does.

Hi Phil,

Thanks for you comments.
So far I can say that there are no problems having both ODBC drivers installed (32bit and 64bit) and using 32-bit.

If anything happens I will report.
