Description Edouard Bourguignon 2008-06-02 10:25:30 EDT
Description of problem:
When you need to install the i386 version of a package which is already
installed for x86_64 PackageKit failed to install saying the package is already
installed. Maybe the PackageKit backend forget to pass the arch parameter to yum?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Seems static.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install libXp.x86_64
2. Now try to install libXp (i386) with PackageKit
3. PackageKit says package's already installed (similar to yum install libXp)
Actual results:
PackageKit can't install the i386 package if the x86_64 version is already

Expected results:
PackageKit should install the selected arch version of a package.

Additional info:
Or maybe it's specific to libXp? But same problem occurs when trying to install
libXtst.i386 after libXtst.x86_64.

Have to install this package with "yum install <package>.i386"
