Description Alex W. Jackson 2008-06-18 04:16:42 UTC
Description of problem:
It seems to be impossible to use the GNOME PackageKit client to install the i386
version of a multilib package whose x86_64 version is already installed.  It
displays an error dialog saying "This package could not be installed as it is
already installed".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have, e.g., SDL.x86_64 installed, but not SDL.i386
2.Run GNOME PackageKit
3.Select i386 version of SDL from list of available packages
4.Click install

Actual results:
"This package could not be installed as it is already installed"

Expected results:
package installs

Additional info:
Dunno if the problem is with gnome-packagekit, or PackageKit itself, or even
further down the stack (yum?) as I can't be arsed to figure out pkcon
syntax--for now I've fallen back to manually downloading and installing using
rpm -i.

Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2008-06-23 10:15:46 UTC
Sure, I've not got a multilib box here so I can't test this. Could you try
rebuilding PackageKit from rawhide and trying that? Thanks.

This is probably a duplicate of #443143.

Comment 3 Alex W. Jackson 2008-07-15 14:33:06 UTC
Yes, it is.
