Description Jason Pepas 2006-07-17 12:57:03 EDT
Description of problem:

The i386 and x86_64 versions of tcp_wrappers share files in common, which means
that one of them will clobber the other's files.  Thus, it is not possible for
the 'rpm --verify' command to work for both rpms.  One of them will *always*
fail, depending upon the order of installation.

Demonstration:

# rpm -ivh --replacepkgs
ftp://mirror/fedora/core/5/x86_64/os/Fedora/RPMS/tcp_wrappers-7.6-40.2.i386.rpm
# rpm -ivh --replacepkgs
ftp://mirror/fedora/core/5/x86_64/os/Fedora/RPMS/tcp_wrappers-7.6-40.2.x86_64.rpm
# rpm --verify tcp_wrappers.i386
.......T    /usr/include/tcpd.h
.......T  d /usr/share/man/man3/hosts_access.3.gz
.......T  d /usr/share/man/man5/hosts_access.5.gz
.......T  d /usr/share/man/man5/hosts_options.5.gz
.......T  d /usr/share/man/man8/tcpd.8.gz
# rpm --verify tcp_wrappers.x86_64

# rpm -ivh --replacepkgs
ftp://mirror/fedora/core/5/x86_64/os/Fedora/RPMS/tcp_wrappers-7.6-40.2.x86_64.rpm
# rpm -ivh --replacepkgs
ftp://mirror/fedora/core/5/x86_64/os/Fedora/RPMS/tcp_wrappers-7.6-40.2.i386.rpm
# rpm --verify tcp_wrappers.i386
# rpm --verify tcp_wrappers.x86_64
.......T    /usr/include/tcpd.h
.......T  d /usr/share/man/man3/hosts_access.3.gz
.......T  d /usr/share/man/man5/hosts_access.5.gz

This is the way rpm -V currently works for multilib packages.
