Description Thomas J. Baker 2008-04-18 20:12:03 UTC
Using the app installer, after installing nspluginwrapper.x86_64, I can't
install the i386 version. When trying to install it, GPK says it's already

raptor> rpm -qa | grep -i packagekit

Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2008-04-20 18:28:28 UTC
Can you please attach the output from:

gpk-application --verbose
<then try to instal the _64 package>


Comment 2 Thomas J. Baker 2008-04-20 22:38:04 UTC
Could you be more specific? Remove both versions of nspluginwrapper and then
verbosely install the the _64? (My original problem was _64 installed, can't
install i386 version.) Thanks.

Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2008-04-21 00:28:04 UTC
Well, try to reproduce the error you describe, so uninstall the i386 and then
try to install it with packagekit. I've not got a 64 bit system, so can't try here.

typescript of gpk-application install of nspluginwrapper.i386

When I created the log, it did colorized logging so there's a lot of garbage in
there but I think you can probably find what you're looking for.

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 09:40:36 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

Log of failed package installation

I think this is the very same problem, tried for the vorbis package on a x86_64

To produce the log the following was done:
- start app
- search for "vorbis" (x86_64 version of libvorbis already installed, i386 is
- try to install libvorbis.i386
- See failure message that package is already installed

Hope that helps.

Comment 8 Thomas J. Baker 2008-06-08 12:10:12 UTC
#6, did you not read #4? It was done a month and a half ago.

Comment 9 Tim Niemueller 2008-06-09 08:23:49 UTC
To make it obious that the questions has been answered, hasn't it?

Comment 10 Tim Niemueller 2008-06-09 08:26:37 UTC
Sorry, was too fast, thought it was still NEEDINFO. Can't reset it to NEW? But
according to the new bug process ASSIGNED is probably right anyway, has it has
been re-defined to be some sort of "problem understood" from "someone is working
on it"...

Comment 11 Robin Norwood 2008-06-09 16:57:09 UTC
ASSIGNED is good enough, I think

Comment 12 Alex W. Jackson 2008-07-15 14:33:07 UTC
