yelp i386 is needed in x86_64 repo
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:07:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Installing firefox.i386 without firefox.86_64 is not possible, because
yelp.x86_64 has a library requirement for firefox.x86_64. yelp.i386 from the
i386 repo resolves the gnome requirement for yelp.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
We don't claim to provide the resources to completely replace any bit of x86_64
infrastructure with i386.
firefox.i386 is included in the x86_64 distribution, but it can not be used.
Most firefox plugins are i386, therefore it is a problem to use them in the
x86_64 version. There is a pluginwrapper for x86_64, I know, but there are
plugins, which are not correctly working with it.
Then fix nspluginwrapper; the point of including firefox.i386 is not to allow
its use as the sole firefox, much as the point of including libgnomeui is not to
allow the use of a 32-bit GNOME stack as the full desktop.
