i686 is dead - there is no RHEL7 for i686 at all
RHEL 7 will continue to provide selected libraries in
both 32-bit and 64-bit, allowing 32-bit applications
to run in the 64-bit RHEL 7 OS environment. This
functionality also exists for RHEL 5 & 6 as documented
in the knowledge article: How to install 32-bit packages
on a 64-bit system
This is not a case of "can't" but "don't want to". Can't
say I blame
them, but it doesn't help me with Wine 32.
the last non x86_64 i faced was 5 years ago and frankly the whole linux
stack would be much more tiny without the old code and could be
optimized for mordern and relevant CPU's
Wine 32 is my only 32 app I have left since I purchased
Qoppa's PDF Studio Pro (worth every cent, by the way).
Accationally, I still have to use 32 bit only Acrobat
Reader for Dynamic XFA forms (they are a pain in the neck).
Maybe at some point, if Coherence gets any traction under KVM
maybe we can work around the 32 bit problem with RHEL 7
