Description of problem:
After up2date processs is finished all files with
suffix rpm and hdr should be deleted ( depending on the preferrences )
This is done for files with a qualifier "ia64", but files with a
qualifier i386 or i686 are kept in any case.
Today ( Sep. 8, 2004 ) I did an update for my rhel 3.0 as for IPF
system. After up2date was completed following files were still kept :
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run up2date on IA64
2.there must be updates for rpms, which exist at least twice
like XFree86-libs-4.3.0-68.EL ( ia64,i386 )
Actual Results: files with qualifier i386, i686 and suffix hdr (and
rpm, this depends on your preferences ) are kept.
Expected Results: files mentioned above should be deleted like files
with qualifier ia64.
the i386 packages not being deleted is a definate bug (fixed
the hdr issue is a bit more complicated, since yum/apt/dir
repos require them to be kept around as a cache (RHN
as well, but less so). I'll take a look an see if
I can find a better approach
