Description David Woodhouse 2008-04-07 08:41:37 UTC
 kdepim-libs             ppc64      6:3.5.9-7.fc9    00myth-rawhide    6.6 M
     replacing  kdepim.ppc 6:3.5.9-6.fc9

Adding '--exclude=kdepim-libs.ppc64' to the command line seems to make it do the
right thing.

Yum from git (a5f9b2c9ae) does the same. Debug output attached.

Is there any more information I can provide to help debug this?

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-04-11 14:52:15 UTC
Fwiw, we're working to drop those multilib upgrade hacks from all kde 
packages(1), they caused more pain/suffering for little gain.

(1) at least that was the intention, if any still remain, that's a bug, like 
here in kdepim (fixing now).

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2008-04-14 14:42:02 UTC
The "Obsoletes" hack we had used to help multilib upgrades for some kde*-libs 
package splits (for f8) was to add to the -libs subpkg:
Obsoletes: %name < %{version}-%{release}
Requires:  %name = %{version}-%{release}
which helped maybe a little, but induced other pain in the process, so I've 
been systematically dropping those Obsoletes (and that's what I did here).

Looking closer here, I doubt this has much (if any) direct impact in the issue 
referenced here.

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2008-04-14 15:34:24 UTC
Also dropped from kdelibs3, the explicit:
Requires: kdnssd-avahi
pkgs that link against this, will (should!) pull it in via implicit library 
dep: libkdnssd.so.1

Do you have a way I can test this situation out a bit more. I have a patch that
may or may not help this case.

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 09:01:28 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

 I think this was fixed with the basearch change in .17
