RedHat ships several packages compiled for several processors. For
instance, there is a gzip-x.y.z-i386.rpm and a gzip-x.y.x-i586.rpm
Having installed gzip-a.b.c-i386.rpm (for instance), where a.b.c < x.y.z,
rpm -Fvh gzip-x.y.z-i?86.rpm
fails, with a lot of conflicts between the files from the two packages.
This is easily to reproduce.
Maybe NOTABUG, but annoying anyway.
This problem will be addressed after rpm-4.0 is released.
rpm 4.0 has been released;-)
And the issue is still being addressed.
