Description Pedro Bezunartea 2005-10-14 13:11:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); es-ES; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
Packages are duplicated with different versions and architectures. In many I have 4 installed: old version (i386 and x86_64), and updated version (i386 and x86_64).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC4 on a x86_64 system.
2. yum update
3. Check packages with: rpm -qa  --qf "%{N}-%{V}-%{R}.%{ARCH}\n"


Actual Results:  Many packages have i386 and x86_64 versions installed (i don't know if this is on purpose) and two versions, eg:

Expected Results:  Only one package, x86_64 architecture.

Additional info:

I can attach the package list if needed.

  This appears related to bug #161038 where the same thing happens with up2date.

Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2005-11-07 05:56:36 UTC
On this first run - did you yum hang or exit abnormally?

Comment 3 Pedro Bezunartea 2005-11-07 11:47:34 UTC
Nope. Yum appeared to work fine, it didn't complain, give any errors or warnings.

Comment 4 Andre Robatino 2005-12-10 18:43:57 UTC
  See also bug #175431.

  NOT SO FAST!  This bug was closed as a duplicate of bug #161038, but then
161038 was closed because it pertained to up2date which is gone.  Yum is NOT
gone, however, so please don't close this very serious and currently existing
bug!  In fact, it would make more sense to mark 161038 as a duplicate of this
bug since some of the discussion there is still relevant.
