Description Allan Engelhardt 2007-06-08 12:58:12 EDT
Description of problem:

I have a Fedora 7 x86_64 install with no .i[3-6]86 packages installed.  When I
try to install Democracy.x86_64 it pulls in firefox.i386 and with that maybe a
hundred other .i[3-6]86 packages.  The message in 'yum install' is

--> Processing Dependency: firefox = for package: Democracy

and the package I try to install is

Democracy.x86_64 version 

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


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do 'yum install Democracy.x86_64' on a 64 bit clean f7 install
Actual results:

yum pulls in tons of .i[3-6]86 packages, the first being firefox.

Expected results:

Only installing x86_64 dependencies.  AFAIK, there is no functional difference
between firefox.i386 and firefox.x86_64, except for some plugin issues, and
therefore no reason for this behaviour?
