Description of problem:
The latest update of gaim wants to pull down the i386 version of gstreamer, but
I get file conflicts from rpm over the shared man page.
This prevents "yum update" from running on any 64 bit system.
Error message from yum:
file /usr/share/man/man1/gst-launch-0.10.1.gz from install of gstreamer-0.10.9-2
conflicts with file from package gstreamer-0.10.9-2
There doesn't seem to be a way for me to disable the i386 repo for core, which
would be my preferred fix so that it stops trying to pull down i386 packages for
files that don't need to be (like gaim).
Well, if that's your preferred fix, you can remove the i386 version of gaim. I
believe that FC6 installs both the i386 and x86_64 versions of gaim by default
$ rpm -q gaim
So do rpm -e gaim.i386 and that will work.
However, I will note that this WORKSFORME. My system updated gaim and both
versions of gstreamer-0-10.9-2 without problems. That might be because it did
both at the same time; I don't know.
I don't have both versions of gaim installed. It appears that gstreamer was
being brought in sort of sideways through various other updates, and by
hand-picking x86_64 packages, it eventually went away as a dependency.
Perhaps this ticket should be reassigned to whoever develops rpm, since it
appears now to be more of a bug in the package subsystem than the gstreamer
*** Bug 205212 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Try changing the "transaction colour" in your /etc/rpm/macros files to "3".
# The default transaction color. This value is a set of bits to
# determine file and dependency affinity for this arch.
# 0 uncolored (i.e. use only arch as install hint)
# 1 Elf32 permitted
# 2 Elf64 permitted
In any case, not a GStreamer bug.
What is transaction color, and if you set as above does it work?
Closing due to lack of activity.
