Description Máirín Duffy 2008-03-20 09:57:33 EDT
Description of problem:

<stahnma> in satellite 4.2.1 if you sync packages between two x86_64 systems,
using the profiles options, it does not sync i386 packages that are installed
(such as 32 bit glibc-devel).
Comment 4 Brad Buckingham 2009-02-12 13:31:55 EST
As part of bug 428139 extensive modifications were made to the system profile capabilities of the Satellite with respect to supporting packages with different architectures.

Modifications included:
- during creation of a profile, store package arch
- during profile comparison, include arch in the comparison and resulting "differences" displayed to the user
- during profile syncing, allow user to sync packages based on the arch differences noticed during the profile comparison

For example, if a system had libjpeg.i386 and the system was compared to a profile that had only libjpeg.x86_64, this difference would be shown during the comparison.  Then if the user chose to do so, they could select removal of the libjpeg.i386 from the system or installation of the libjpeg.x86_64 on the system as part of the 'sync to system' capability.

Since the solution for this BZ was implemented by another (428139), will mark this one as a 'duplicate'.
