SLES 12.5 Development tools missing pam-devel 32bit

I have an application that needs pam-devel32. I cannot find a version for SLES 12 SP5 in any of the SLES repositories. Does anyone know where I can find it?


@bbellrose Hi and welcome to the Forum :slight_smile:
There is no 32bit development only lib support, does pam-devel headers not suffice? What headers are you looking for or trying to compile? What platform, x86_64 etc?

My developers have an old 32bit app that is looking for /usr/lib/ and the other 32bit versions of pam-devel package. I am running on x86_64. I have the 64bit development package installed, but it is not working for them.

Are you saying the 64bit version should be ok? Can I set up a softlink for /usr/lib that points to /usr/lib64 so they can compile their software?


@bbellrose Hi, not possible anymore, creating a link won’t work (ELF error). No 32bit development anymore… :frowning: Maybe run it in docker or other container?
