Description Andrew Haley 2007-09-11 10:32:12 EDT
Trying to install a 32-bit IcedTea RPM package on a 64-bit OS when the 64-bit
IcedTea is already installed causes file conflicts.  It is possible to get
around this problem with --force, but we should really fix it.

Also, it does not seem to be possible to persuade yum to install the 32-bit
packages on a 64-bit system.  We need to fix this too.

The fix is to install both sets of packages at the same time.  This is an rpm
limitation.

This is deliberate.  See:
