Description Paul Nasrat 2003-08-27 07:16:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

Description of problem:
Upon trying to use up2date to upgrade XFree86 which requires a newer glibc it
selects the incorrect arch for glibc.

I have confirmed up2date will install and upgrade a non-multi arch package:

up2date lynx (install) 
up2date mutt (upgrade)

[paul@babel paul]$ uname -a
Linux babel.eridu 2.4.21-20.1.2024.2.1.nptl #1 Fri Jul 11 05:55:25 EDT 2003 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install severn on mini-itx platform
2. Subscribe to rhn
3. Ensure that redhat 9.0.93 updates subchannel is subscribed to in rhn
3. run up2date glibc


Actual Results:  Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 1148, in ?
    sys.exit(main() or 0)
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 747, in main
    fullUpdate, dryRun=options.dry_run))
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 1014, in batchRun

  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2date.py", line 717, in installPackages
    runTransaction(ts, rpmCallback, rollbacktrans = rollbacktrans)
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2date.py", line 622, in runTransaction
    rpmUtils.runTransaction(ts,rpmCallback, transdir)
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/rpmUtils.py", line 482, in runTransaction
    "Failed running transaction of  packages: %s") % errors, deps=rc)
up2date_client.up2dateErrors.TransactionError: RPM  error. The message was:
Failed running transaction of  packages:
('package glibc-2.3.2-71 is intended for a i686 architecture', (0, 'i686', 0L))

Expected Results:  i386 package should be selected and upgraded.  The fact it
fails on i686 is good, as it definitely shouldn't install the wrong arch.
