Symptom

When trying to to install the Men & Mice Suite (for example Version 6.1.4) on a 64bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) or CentOS system, the installer scipt responds with

Welcome to the Men & Mice Suite 6.1.4 installer.
ERROR: Men & Mice Suite binaries appear to be incompatible with your system.
If this is a 64-bit system, you will need to install 32-bit compatibility
libraries before installing the Men & Mice Suite.

Problem

The Men & Mice Suite Linux binaries are compiled for 32bit Linux systems. Currently there would be no additional benefit to compile the Men & Mice Suite binaries for 64bit Systems. In order to be able to run the Men & Mice 32bit binaries on a 64bit system, you need to install the 32bit compatibility libraries.

Solution

In version 6.8 of the Men & Mice Suite, 64-bit binaries are provided.

On RHEL and CentOS, the 32bit compatibility libraries can be installed with this command:

yum install glibc.i686
yum install libgcc.i686





 Once the libraries are installed, the Men & Mice Suite binaries can be installed as normal.
