Is there any update on this call please?

Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2004-07-24 15:56:56 UTC
It's a known issue that not all libraries parallel install between
x86_64 and i386 in RHEL3. Work has been done to fix this in develment
versions but the changes are quite substantial and thus potentially
dangerous. It is not yet decided when to introduce those changes into 
a RHEL3 update.

I'm going to reassing this bug to up2date since it isn't clear
to me why up2date should be trying to pull in the i386 version
of additional packages. There may be some debug options you can
add to get more information about why it's pulling in the above

I am seeing this on fedora core 3 test 1. To reproduce, install it on
an x86_64 machine fresh as a "workstation" install. Then run up2date
from the gnome "tray". When it displays the list of packages, you'll
see some i386 packages in there that duplicate the x86_64 ones that are
also listed.
