Description Ben Levenson 2005-05-10 17:51:54 EDT
Description of problem:
rpm ignores obsoletes statements across arch.

bug 157194 is an example of this.

openoffice.org-style-gnome is obsoleted by the latest openoffice.org packages:
# rpm -q --obsoletes openoffice.org-1.1.2-24.2.0.EL3
openoffice
openoffice.org-style-gnome

but the openoffice.org-style-gnome package wasn't removed during upgrade:
# rpm -q --qf "%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n" openoffice.org
openoffice.org-style-gnome
openoffice.org-1.1.2-24.2.0.EL3.i386
openoffice.org-style-gnome-1.1.0-16.9.EL.x86_64

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.2.3-13

Yup. Obsoletes: are same color (i.e. elf32 can obsolete elf32, not elf64)
, as requested by yum et al depsolvers.
