Description Mihai Ibanescu 2000-04-03 17:06:44 UTC
RedHat ships several packages compiled for several processors. For
instance, there is a gzip-x.y.z-i386.rpm and a gzip-x.y.x-i586.rpm

Having installed gzip-a.b.c-i386.rpm (for instance), where a.b.c < x.y.z,

rpm -Fvh gzip-x.y.z-i?86.rpm

fails, with a lot of conflicts between the files from the two packages.

This is easily to reproduce.
Maybe NOTABUG, but annoying anyway.

Very annoying.

This problem will be addressed after rpm-4.0 is released.

Comment 2 Gerald Teschl 2000-12-30 10:45:28 UTC
rpm 4.0 has been released;-)

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2000-12-30 14:09:08 UTC
And the issue is still being addressed.
