Description Sérgio Durigan Júnior 2008-06-19 15:11:30 EDT
Description of problem

The package 'python-tools' has multilib conflicts when installing both PPC and
PPC64 versions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable)

- python-tools-2.5.1-25.fc9.ppc
- python-tools-2.5.1-25.fc9.ppc64

Steps to Reproduce

1. yum install python-tools.ppc

2. yum install python-tools.ppc64
Actual results

An error occurs regarding multilib conflicts:

Transaction Check Error:
  file /usr/bin/modulator from install of python-tools-2.5.1-25.fc9.ppc64
conflicts with file from package python-tools-2.5.1-25.fc9.ppc
  file /usr/bin/pynche from install of python-tools-2.5.1-25.fc9.ppc64 conflicts
with file from package python-tools-2.5.1-25.fc9.ppc

Expected results

Both packages should be installed together without problems according to
multilib conventions from Fedora.
Comment 1 Sérgio Durigan Júnior 2008-07-11 15:38:19 EDT

I'd like to know what's the status of this issue. Have you taken a look into it?

Thanks in advance!
Comment 2 Sérgio Durigan Júnior 2008-07-22 10:49:04 EDT

Still waiting for the status.

Comment 3 James Antill 2008-07-22 11:35:25 EDT
 So both of the above are basically:

exec /usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/modulator/modulator.py

...I can convert them to:


from modulator.modulator import main
if __name__ == '__main__':



from pynche.Main import main
if __name__ == '__main__':

...I think that should cover it, although I doubt I'll be able to get to it this
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 21:41:54 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 11:27:30 EDT
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
