Description Jochen Schmitt 2007-10-19 18:24:59 UTC
As described in BZ #339981 I have a severe issue when I update an package but
the i386 version of the package was gone.

I suggest, that the i386 version of the package should be deleted, if it will be
not provided in the repository.

One crazy idea would be to implement forced Obsoletes (possibly including
arch-specific ones) via a yum plugin to help handle cases like these.  Of
course, that may just be the crack-rock talking...

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-22 18:05:22 UTC
Seth had started on a plugin to do removals on upgrade and a metadata file that
could be included in the repo to track things like this

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-10-22 18:12:55 UTC
Woohoo, so it wasn't crack afterall, unless we're all using the same stuff... :)

Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2007-10-22 18:17:26 UTC

That's the plugin

Very cool, shall we include it in yum-utils ?

maybe adding rpm & yum to the badmatches is a good idea ?

Comment 6 Seth Vidal 2007-12-07 03:33:45 UTC
go ahead and merge it into yum-utils. It's still a little hurky from a support
standpoint but someone can make good use of it until we figure out if we need it
for regular use in fedora.

Comment 7 Tim Lauridsen 2007-12-07 08:49:51 UTC
Seth: Look like you already have added it yourself (upgrade-helper plugin) :)

Comment 8 Seth Vidal 2007-12-07 12:52:24 UTC
