Description Pradeep Kilambi 2008-10-29 12:13:11 EDT
Description of problem:

up2date by default seems to ignore the arch information for packages while installing/updating/scheduled actions. This is due to the fact that server never sent down arch info. But once we have the server sent down arch, look slike the client seems to ignore the data and still take into account only the NVRE.

possible changes would be in wrapper.py, u2dateBatch.py and rhnPackageInfo.py

The above test cases have been verified.

In addition, Prad's diff test has also been verified.
