Error: Protected multilib versions


When I “yum install libXext.i686 -y”, it failed because

Error: Protected multilib versions: libXext-1.3.1-2.el6.i686 != libXext-1.1-3.el6.x86_64
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Then I do again “yum install libXext.i686 -y –skip-broken”. but again another message like this

Error: Protected multilib versions: libXext-1.3.1-2.el6.i686 != libXext-1.1-3.el6.x86_64
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I have run these

package-cleanup --dupes
package-cleanup --cleandupes
yum clean all
yum update #take very long time to finish

Here the solution that work for me,

yum install libXext.i686 -y --setopt=proctected_multilib=false
