so, not using x64 system, you would *not* install x64 packages. You
can probably find lame-3.96.1-1suse92.rpm to satisfy the dependencies.

You need to think about your situation. You would not install an os2
package or a (pardon me) windoz package on your x32 linux system and
expect it to work....
