Description Martin Braun 2005-04-30 07:49:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
After installing Fedora Core 3 (x86_64) I found that
perl rpms for x86_64 and i386 are present on my system
(this is probably normal).
`rpm -q --queryformat "%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n" perl'

Running `rpm --verify' on both packages shows that the same
files were installed by both packages causing verification errors.
A more serious problem is that perl can not by updated by yum for two
1) only x86_64 version gets updated
2) update fails because of conflicting files

(see attached log)

Perl documentation and scripts should be moved to a noarch

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
perl-5.8.5-9, perl-5.8.5-11.FC3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm --verify perl-5.8.5-9.x86_64
2.rpm --verify perl-5.8.5-9.i386
3.yum update

Actual Results:  1) no output
2) error messages (checksum and timestamp errors)
3) update failure because of conflicting files

Expected Results:  1) no output
2) no output
3) update success

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-04-30 16:22:50 EDT
Unfortunately we made a mistake with the original FC3 x86_64 and shipped i386
perl by accident when it was never meant to be multilib.  The only way to
recover is to use 'yum remove perl.i386'.

Sorry about the inconvenience.
