Description Nathan G. Grennan 2004-12-21 22:05:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
yum packaged for x86_64 seems to improperly put files in
/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages. It should be
/usr/lib64/python2.3/site-packages. This package isn't alone, and I
discovered this problem while trying to install bittorrent from
pre-extras.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=143520

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-2.1.12-0.fc3

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qf yum | grep site-packages
2. rpm -qf python | grep site-packages

    

Actual Results:  yum uses /usr/lib and python uses /usr/lib64

Expected Results:  yum and python use /usr/lib64

Additional info:

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-12-21 22:18:51 UTC
yum is noarch, hence its python files go in /usr/lib.  Multilib arches
like x86_64 search both /usr/lib64 and /usr/lib for python files.

Otherwise, it would be impossible to have a noarch python package.

Comment 2 Nathan G. Grennan 2004-12-21 22:32:00 UTC
I forgot to take noarch into account. In my head I was comparing yum
to python and one is noarch and the other is i386.
