Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1304728
golang-bin & gcc-go both "own" /usr/bin/go.
Last modified: 2016-02-04 10:06:34 EST
Description of problem:
The /usr/bin/go program is "owned" (rpm -qf /usr/bin/go) by both gcc-go and golang-bin. It appears that these two packages should be mutually exclusive, or install to different directories.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.dnf install golang-bin gcc-go
2.rpm -qf /usr/bin/go
$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/go
Only one "owner".
This is expected as "go" binaries uses Fedora Alternatives https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Alternatives. It is just symlink pointing to "correct" go binary, basically allowing you to switch back and forth between them without need to re/un/install the packages.
