Description Mihai Ibanescu 2000-04-03 13:06:44 EDT
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.

Very annoying.

This problem will be addressed after rpm-4.0 is released.
Comment 2 Gerald Teschl 2000-12-30 05:45:28 EST
rpm 4.0 has been released;-)
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2000-12-30 09:09:08 EST
And the issue is still being addressed.
