Description David Lehman 2005-04-11 15:15:45 UTC
Description of problem:
specifying architecture of a given package generates errors saying, eg: package
zlib.i386 does not exist.

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

How reproducible:
Always on multilib systems.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Specify "Compatibility Arch Support" but not "Compatibility Arch Development
Support" comps in a kickstart config.
2. Explicitly specify a multilib devel package, eg: 'zlib-devel.i386' on x86_64
3. Run the kickstart
Actual results:
"You have specified that the "
"package 'zlib-devel.i386' should be installed.  "
"This package does not exist. "
"Would you like to continue or "
"abort your installation?"

Expected results:
Successful installation of i386 zlib-devel package.

This is already commited (as of this morning) to the rhel4 branch of anaconda -
is this a candidate for U1 still or U2?
