Description Jeremy Katz 2007-03-01 16:59:53 UTC
Querying for a package by arch can lead to odd (lack of) output in some cases.

Easiest to show with an example:
[katzj@erebor creator]$ rpm -q bash
bash-0:3.2-9.fc7.x86_64
[katzj@erebor creator]$ rpm -q bash.x86_64
bash-0:3.2-9.fc7.x86_64
[katzj@erebor creator]$ rpm -q bash.i386
[katzj@erebor creator]$ rpm -q foo
package foo is not installed
[katzj@erebor creator]$ rpm -q foo.i386
package foo.i386 is not installed


I'd expect the query for bash.i386 to say that it's not installed.

Comment 1 Michal Jaegermann 2007-03-02 04:00:34 UTC
That goes somewhat deeper.  Watch this:
$ rpm -q bash ; echo $?
bash-3.2-9.fc7
0
$rpm -q bash.x86_64 ; echo $?
bash-3.2-9.fc7
0
$ rpm -q foo ; echo $?
package foo is not installed
1
$ rpm -q foo.i386 ; echo $?
package foo.i386 is not installed
1
$ rpm -q bash.i386 ; echo $?
0

Clearly your rpm is configured in some non-default way if
it responds with 'bash-0:3.2-9.fc7.x86_64' but that is not the issue.

This is a dupe of another bug report (by D. Hugh Radimier iirc).
