Cannot install i386 qt on xmu86_64 system
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:45 EST
It is not possible to install an i386 arch qt RPM on an x86_64 system,
due to a conflict as follows:
file /usr/bin/qtconfig from install of qt-3.3.2-2 conflicts with file
from package qt-3.3.2-2
This problem was also present in FC1.
It's a correct behavior of rpm. the qt for x86_64 and i386 cannot be
/usr/bin/qtconfig caused a file conflict, because it's already included
in another rpm!
I'm sorry, but this sounds quite bogus. If that's the case, it makes
it impossible to run any 32-bit qt apps on an x86_64 box.
The correct thing to do is either fix the qt RPM so this conflict
doesn't occur or split qt into a qt-libs and qt package, so that it's
possible to run 32-bit apps on a 64-bit machine. Ignoring the problem
is not a correct approach, I believe.
it's fixed in 1:3.3.2-9, it allows now multilib installation.
