Fedora 17 64-bit + ATI 5770 = no 32-bit OpenGLlibs?

I'm not sure where to go at this point.  I have a Fedora 17 64-bit OS with 2 x AMD Radeon 5770 cards in Crossfire.  I installed the fglrx driver via the Catalyst 12.4 download from AMD (this works fine with openarena and alienarena, by the way).  I've also installed PlayOnLinux 4.1.1 from the rpm package.  When I open PlayOnLinux, it tells me: "PlayOnLinux is unable to find 32bits OpenGL libraries. You might encounter problem with your games".  How do I get the 32-bit OpenGL libraries?  Apparently they're available for Fedora versions before 17 via xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs.i586, but I can't find anywhere that mentions availability for Fedora 17.  Is that what I need?  Or just a 32-bit install of fglrx?  How can I compile and/or install the fglrx 32-bit driver?

The reason that I'm asking is because I can't get Diablo 3 to run -- it crashes right after I hit the "Play" button in the Blizzard/Diablo 3 launcher.  If I don't need the libraries, that's fine... but I suspect that it could be the cause of my problems here.

Yep, you needs 32bits OpenGL libraries. However, I don't know how to install them with ATI drivers

Thanks for the quick reply. It appears that both 32-bit and 64-bit versions are included with the driver download from AMD, but only the 64-bit is compiled/installed -- due to some architecture auto-detection, maybe? Wonder if there is a way to force the 32-bit when doing a "make" for the source... I haven't had much luck exploring that avenue via Google, but I'll poke around a little more.

If anybody else has done something similar or has a reference that they could point me to, that would be very helpful. Thanks!

i have an ATI HD 4870 x2 on Fedora 17 x86_64 and to install the OpenGL libraries as root I ran yum install mesa*.i686. I do not have a problem with the Open Gl errors any more.

I did an account on this site just to say "Thank you" that info worked for me too.
I had installed Playonlinux to play League of legends(Lol) but anytime I used to open Lol it was keeping in a totally black screen, after used that command to install opengl libreries, the error at opening playonlinux dissapeared and Lol starting working fine. I'm using Fedora 18 64 bits.
Sorry for my bad english.. btw thank you !
