Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 132975
yum dies under certain biarch-related circumstances
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:49:55 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the i386 version of a package whose x86_64 version is
tracked by yum.
2. yum update
Yum dies and spits out a traceback
Yum succeeds or performs a graceful error+exit

logfile of package info, failure, and success
Can you still replicate this using yum 2.1.6 or later?
