Description of problem:
rhnlib 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


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

How reproducible:

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

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

Expected Results:  rhnlib and python use /usr/lib64

Comment 1 Mihai Ibanescu 2004-12-21 17:24:08 EST
On 64-bit machines python looks packages up into /usr/lib/python2.3 too. 
Most python packages are noarch, and that's the only solution.
Comment 2 Nathan G. Grennan 2004-12-21 17:33:26 EST
I forgot to take noarch into account. In my head I was comparing rhnlib
to python and one is noarch and the other is i386.
