Does anything actually stop you removing the x86-64 mozilla and installing the x86-32 one with FC2. I've not tried this but can't see any obvious reason to fail

You'll need to install many iX86 RPMs, mostly for libs obviously, many of which overwrite files belonging to the x86_64 versions of those RPMs. Mostly documentation and headers admittedly, not a big deal, but some binaries too, which is annoying. (eg /usr/sbin/iconvconfig in glibc RPM).


Why on earth weren't /(usr)?/bin64 directories created for the FC2 x86_64 port for x86_64 binaries to be installed to? ;) PATH is far easier to manipulate than all those preexisting RPMs. (hindsight 20/20 possibly).
