Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1474107
Conflicts between i686 and x86_64 packages
Last modified: 2018-05-04 08:39:56 EDT
Description of problem: Conflict with new package version where the same was installable without any problems in Fedora 25.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install mono-core.i686 mono-core.x86_64
Error: Transaction check error:
file /usr/lib/mono/4.5/mscorlib.dll conflicts between attempted installs of mono-core-4.8.0-7.fc26.x86_64 and mono-core-4.8.0-7.fc26.i686
Expected results: Both packages installable simultaneously
I checked how it worked on Fedora 25:
rpm -ql mono-core | grep mscorlib
rpm -qf /usr/lib/mono/4.5/mscorlib.dll
If I remove one package:
dnf remove mono-core.i686
the file /usr/lib/mono/4.5/mscorlib.dll is still there.
Ok, here is a hint:
"they contain the same .mo files which is not a problem if you install the same version of x86_64 and i686 package (because the files are identical - have the same chackusum). If versions differ so do files (because they contain at least different timestamps) and it (must) generates file conflict."
So it seems, in Mono 4.8 the file mscorlib.dll is compiled differently for 32 and for 64 bit, and therefore cannot be installed in parallel anymore.
I don't know if and how that can be solved. Any ideas? Do we need to use /usr/lib64 etc? But that would mean quite a lot of change.
Are there any other ways you could workaround this issue? Perhaps using linux containers to install the two packages seperately?

I am not using it, so I am not having any issues with it personally, thus I am not the right person to answer that. Just reporting the issue.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
This still occurs on Fedora 28.
