Thanks for your help

As you suggested I do indeed have a 64bit version called exactly the same

PC5-140:/home/rmgzshd # rpm -qf /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 libpng-32bit-1.2.8-19.5
PC5-140:/home/rmgzshd # rpm -qf /usr/lib64/libpng12.so.0 libpng-1.2.8-19.5

SO how do I tell rpm to find this and not the 32bit file? Or do I need to edit something in the rpm file?

Thanks
