Description Florian Hubold 2013-12-22 17:42:21 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #470938 +++

Description of problem:
When trying to download x86_64 packages and explicitly using --archlist=x86_64 it also downloads i686 packages.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
(happens with any package except for noarch)

$ yumdownloader --archlist=x86_64 qt5-qttools
(1/2): qt5-qttools-5.2.0-0.10.rc1.fc20.i686.rpm                                                                                                         | 3.8 MB  00:00:01     
(2/2): qt5-qttools-5.2.0-0.10.rc1.fc20.x86_64.rpm                                                                                                       | 3.8 MB  00:00:03
Actual results:
It downloads the package for all architectures available from repos.

Expected results:
It should only download the x86_64 package, as per the documentation:

$ yumdownloader | grep -A1 archlist
                        only download packages of certain architecture(s)

Comment 1 Florian Hubold 2013-12-22 18:12:14 UTC
FWIW, using yum reinstall qt5-qttools --downloadonly --downloaddir=. it works as expected, but probably just because only the x86_64 package is installed.

Also tried to explicitly set the basearch as proposed the original bug seems to suggest via:

yum-config-manager --save --setopt=basearch=x86_64

But that has no effect, also manpage of yum.conf doesn't mention either setarch or basearch, only $basearch as variable for repo configuration, so this is probably no valid setting at all.

Comment 2 Valentina Mukhamedzhanova 2014-03-11 16:54:32 UTC
Hello Florian, the documentation is actually inaccurate here, --archlist limits architectures to the given and all compatible with the given. I have fixed the documentation upstream. For your use case please use the following command:

yumdownloader -x \*i686 --archlist=x86_64 qt5-qttools

Comment 3 Florian Hubold 2014-03-12 21:32:58 UTC
Hi Valentina,

thanks for the hint, will certainly try that :)

Would my assumption be correct, that on x86_64 it would be enough to simply exclude i686, without using --archlist at all?

Comment 4 Valentina Mukhamedzhanova 2014-03-13 09:48:34 UTC
You might also want to exclude these arches: athlon, i586, i486, i386, noarch, because they all are compatible with x86_64.
