Description Bryan O'Sullivan 2004-06-24 05:31:41 UTC
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.

Comment 1 Ngo Than 2004-06-24 10:01:16 UTC
It's a correct behavior of rpm. the qt for x86_64 and i386 cannot be
installed coexistent.

/usr/bin/qtconfig caused a file conflict, because it's already included
in another rpm!

Comment 2 Bryan O'Sullivan 2004-06-24 18:00:26 UTC
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.
