As I said to Suvayu Ali, everything is fine now. There should be no
reason why the 32bit version shouldn't work on a 64bit installation
with a wrapper, the advantage being that yum manages the 32 bit
version.

I couldn't agree more on what you say here about using free software on the net:

"I really really wish YouTube would switch to Theora so that I don’t
have to install flash.."

"http://blog.christophersmart.com/2009/07/16/flash-fedora/";

I checked a bit Wikipedia to understand the matter. It seems that Ogg
Theora is free and offers good quality streaming. Why then has Dirac
been developed?
