Trying to install openssl-devel on RHEL 6.2.

yum install openssl-devel

And i am getting this error:

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: glibc-2.12-1.47.el6.i686 (rhel62)
       Requires: glibc-common = 2.12-1.47.el6
       Removing: glibc-common-2.12-1.47.el6.x86_64 (@anaconda-RedHatEnterpriseLinux-201111171049.x86_64/6.2)
           glibc-common = 2.12-1.47.el6
       Updated By: glibc-common-2.12-1.80.el6_3.7.x86_64 (rhel62-update)
           glibc-common = 2.12-1.80.el6_3.7
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

--skip-broken does not help. How can I fix this?

Update: Fixed by updating ro RHEL 6.4

    Are you mixing 32bit and 64bit? What error do you get if you try to uninstall glibc-common-2.12-1.47.el6.x86_64 manually? – Rik Oct 23 '13 at 12:00
  • We don't have enough of your output of yum. What package does it say is going to be installed. The .x86_64 or the i686 version ? I think there is some mixing of 32bit and 64bit going on here. Please give the complete output of yum install openssl-devel. – Rik Oct 25 '13 at 8:05

Have you tried making sure you have up to date information in your RPM databases? Something along the lines yum clean all && yum update might be in order at this point.
