OMSA 4.4 is setup so that is has a 32-bit userland, even on x86_64 
boxes.  That's why all the packages are .i386.rpm.  It also means that 
you need to solve those deps with the 32-bit (i386) packages, not the 
64-bit (x86_64) ones.

Don't worry, the packages are smart enough to make sure it'll load a 
64-bit kernel module on 64-bit kernels.

For future reference, the dependency 'libpam.so.0' is for the 32-bit 
version.  'libpam.so.0()(64bit)' is for the 64-bit version.
