Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238964
Deltarpm doesn't deal with multi-lib systems well
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:03 EST
Description of problem:
Deltarpm doesn't store the arch of the old package in the drpm file. When you
try applydeltarpm drpm newrpm, it will fail half of the time on an x86_64 system
where two rpms have been installed with the same name, version and release, but
This makes yum-presto barely usable on an x86_64 system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Michael Schroeder, the maintainer of deltarpm has sent me a patch that allows
the user to use the "-a" option to specify the arch the drpm is made for. This
is only a workaround, but he has promised that it will be available in the next
version of deltarpm.

Patch to add -a option to specify arch
Patch looks sane to me. Fixed in 3.4-2, thanks!
