kdelibs.i386 conflicts with kdelibs.x86_64
Last modified: 2008-05-23 11:09:07 EDT
Description of problem:
You can't yum install kdelibs.i386 on an amd64 Fedora 9 box.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kdelibs i386 6:4.0.3-7.fc9
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 64-bit fedora 9 with KDE.
3. yum install kdelibs.i386
Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/sonnet/index.cache.bz2 from install of
kdelibs-4.0.3-7.fc9.i386 conflicts with file from package kdelibs-4.0.3-7.fc9.x86_64
side-by-side kdelibs.amd64 in /usr/lib64 and kdelibs.i386 in /usr/lib
prevents the running of 32-bit kde apps on 64-bit fedora 9
Joy, more doxygen borkage, it would appear.
The workaround is to install the 2 versions in one transaction, which for some
reason gets RPM not to complain.
rpm -e --nodeps kdelibs
yum install kdelibs kdelibs.i386
But we have to fix this in some way.
Same problem with latest F9 KDE updates:
I've worked around the problem like this:
# rpm -Uvh --force kdelibs-4.0.4-4.fc9.i386.rpm
(after satisfying all kdelibs.i386 dependencies with yum)
Maybe move non-arch conflicts to kdelibs-common ?
(doesn't solve conflict in kdelibs4 for previous releases tho)
or maybe some other "common" type subpkg.
noticed with kdelibs-4.0.4 that
nevermind, I reconfirmed that kjava.jar was bogus (a local botch).
