Default 32 bit OpenGl libraries with a 64 bit driver

Hi all,

I'm trying to find out how to get proprietary 32bit libraries for opengl when I already have the 64bit drivers running well, if it's even possible without messing up the original drivers. I am on Fedora 15 64bit with the latest nvidia driver. Any help or pointers would be much appreciated.

PS this is to get some wine games working, I'm not sure if I could make some links or something to the 64bit libraries.

Some distros have 32 emul libraries but I don't know about Fedora. Another way is to install a complete 32 bit system to chroot into. Google it.

Thank you much, both of those look like they're going to get things working.

Edit: yum has the 32bit library rpms too, it just took some more digging.

If you install the NVIDIA drivers manually from this site, do the following:
If you insist in using the repositories provided by your distro (which is usually the easiest way), then you'd best asking in your distro's forums. Probably the only thing needed is to select another package from the NVIDIA repository, but I really don't know.
