Description Zack Cerza 2004-09-20 15:50:58 UTC
Description of problem:
I recently found myself with both x86_64 and i386 versions of samba
installed at the same time. This probably happened when I was doing
some QA on samba. When I went to 'yum update' later, yum died an ugly
death instead of simply giving an error message or just ignoring the

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the i386 version of a package whose x86_64 version is
tracked by yum.
2. yum update
Actual results:
Yum dies and spits out a traceback

Expected results:
Yum succeeds or performs a graceful error+exit

Additional info:
See logfile

Can you still replicate this using yum 2.1.6 or later?
