Fixing Oracle SQL Developer on 64 bit Fedora 13

If getting error while trying to start SQL Developer on 64 bit Fedora

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_07/jre/lib/i386/xawt/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The installed libXtst is 64 bit and sqldeveloper will not work until 32bit version of the same package is installed.

Installing 32 bit package on Fedora

sudo yum install packagename.i686

Now to fix the Oracle SQL Developer problem install the 32 bit version of  libXtst

  sudo yum install libXtst.i686
