Description John Matthews 2008-06-25 18:42:08 UTC
Description of problem:
rhn-applet is unable to distinguish between updates for packages of different archs.
Example:  on a 64bit OS, install 32bit firefox.i386 (1 rev older than latest).
Look at updated packages rhn-applet sees, it will mistakenly display an update
is available for firefox.x86_64, even when that package isn't installed.

Desire is to add "arch" data to each package returned from poll_packages.

We have not addressed this specific bug in over 5 years years. This does not seem to have an active customer case with the bug report either. Closing out as wontfix to clear from backlog. 

Please re-open if you disagree and wish further review.
