Description Jan Kratochvil 2006-09-11 12:14:41 EDT
Description of problem:
rpm-database has weird state for multilib packages.
It shows files not existing there while even succeeding their verification (-V).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qlv dbus.x86_64 dbus.i386|grep '/bin/dbus-daemon$'
2. rpm -V   dbus.x86_64 dbus.i386|grep '/bin/dbus-daemon$'

Actual results:
1. -rwxr-xr-x    1 root    root           639104 May  5 19:40 /bin/dbus-daemon
   -rwxr-xr-x    1 root    root           687816 May  5 19:41 /bin/dbus-daemon
2. [nothing]

Expected results:
1. -rwxr-xr-x    1 root    root           687816 May  5 19:41 /bin/dbus-daemon
2. [nothing]

Or some other indication that the .i386 file instance does not exist there.

Additional info:
I have seen even -V failing the verification but I cannot reproduce it now.
The -V step was correct this way but the whole user perception is also wrong.

"dbus" is only a multilib package sample here.

Files have state associated, display a file's state by doing
    rpm -qs dbus.i386 | grep daemon

You should see the state "wrong color", meaning that rpm
chose to install the ELF64, not the ELF32, executable.

Uninstalled files are skipped with --verify.

Oops, I missed this option, I even searched for such one, thanks.
