Description Ulrich Drepper 2008-04-11 13:16:33 EDT
Description of problem:
When selecting the development platform installation the appropriate .ppc -devel
packages are installed.  But the .ppc64 equivalents are missing (this is a ppc64
machine, the kernel is a 64-bit kernel and therefore anaconda knows it).  On
x86-64 we automatically get the .i386 and .x86_64 -devel packages installed. 
This should also happen for ppc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
whatever is on the beta DVD ISO

How reproducible:
haven't tried but I don't expect it to be a fluke

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install on 64-bit ppc with developer option
2.rpm -q glibc-devel  <--- just one example, of course
Actual results:

Expected results:

This is a distribution level policy change to not install multilib packages by
default.  The same will occur on x86_64.
