compiz-devel requires libdecoration.so.0

Description of problem:
yum update failed today because
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Dependency: libdecoration.so.0 for package: compiz-devel
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: libdecoration.so.0 is needed by package compiz-devel
This only happened on my x86_64 machines. The i386 machines all happily upgraded.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a previous version of compiz and compiz-devel
2. yum update
The yum update fails with the error message given above.
Yum should successfully update compiz and compiz-devel.
It turns out that we had both the x86_64 and i386 versions of compiz-devel
installed. Uninstalling the i386 version let the yum update go through. This
means that the i386 compiz-devel currently in x86_64 updates is not installable.
I think I tracked this one down. Is it possible for you to reproduce the same
setup and see if it is fixed with compiz-0.5.2-5.0ec3ec.fc8? Thanks.
I just changed jobs and moved and, alas, I no longer have access to an x86_64
machine. I'm i686 only until I feel rich enough to buy a new computer. :-(
Heh, let me know if you get an x86_64 and still see this problem. In the
meantime, I haven't seen this reported from anybody else, and I'll close this
for now. Thanks.
