I am trying to install R on an old RHEL5 system. sudo yum install R reveals

This system is receiving updates from RHN Classic or RHN Satellite.

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Not sure what the issue is here. sudo yum install libRmath tells me

Package matching libRmath-2.15.2-1.el5.x86_64 already installed. Checking for update.
Nothing to do

libRmath-devel-2.15.2-1.el5."i386" , libRmath-2.15.2-1.el5."x86_64" are different. –  Sepahrad Salour Aug 20 '13 at 9:56
    
Why would it be looking for "i386" version. Isnt that 32 bit? –  moadeep Aug 20 '13 at 10:04
    
i386 means 32bit and x86_64 means 64bit. –  Sepahrad Salour Aug 20 '13 at 11:13
