Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 456451
System->Software->List - incorrect package details displayed
Last modified: 2009-01-22 11:29:34 EST
Description of problem:
Listing packages (systems->system->software->packages->list):
Selecting a package from the package list associated with an x86_64 client
displays the details of an x86_64 package, even if the client has the i386
package installed. This is due to the fact that the package data in
rhnServerPackage for x86_64 clients does not have the package architecture
From initial analysis, impact to backend is anticipated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. select Systems
2. select an x86_64 system
3. select Software -> Packages -> List
4. select a Package from the list that you know is i386 on the client (e.g. libjpeg)
Package details displayed are for the x86_64 package.
Package details displayed should be for the i386 package that is actually installed.
