Description of problem:
A default installation of F7 in a x86_64 machine installs Evolution and some
other GNOME applications in both i386 and x86_64 architectures.
At first I assumed this was normal behavior, similar to what happens to Firefox.
However, since I don't use them, I decided to remove the i386 packages and run
into bug #248884. In the resolution of bug #248884, Matthew Barnes informed me
that "Fedora is not designed to have the same application installed twice for
Then, Anaconda (or Yum) has a bug where applications (in this case Evolution and
some other GNOME apps) are wrongly installed twice, inducing the situation where
a package removal can also remove some vital components like translations.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F7 installer as released.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F7, select GNOME.
anaconda is doing entirely the right thing here. We install both arches.
mbarnes is just confused. bug 248884 is a bug in rpm as it shouldn't remove the
shared files on removing one arch. Reopening and reassigning it accordingly.
