Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2008-11-14 17:07:37 EST
That would be an anaconda or yum bug.
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 00:24:11 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 3 seth vidal 2008-12-10 09:41:02 EST
This is a brand new install from anaconda w/o any yum update or yum install command run on it?
Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2009-02-16 11:49:40 EST
Yup.  At install, glibc-devel.i386 is installed:

[root@berretto ~]# grep glibc install.log
Installing glibc-2.9-2.i686
Installing glibc-2.9-2.x86_64
Installing glibc-common-2.9-2.x86_64
Installing glibc-headers-2.9-2.x86_64
Installing glibc-devel-2.9-2.i386
Comment 5 seth vidal 2009-03-06 16:28:28 EST
I can't find any replicators of this.

Can you try it out on a rawhide  or f11alpha install and see if it is still the case?
Comment 6 Orion Poplawski 2009-03-10 11:49:12 EDT
Okay, I think I know what's triggering the issue.  I have:


in my kickstart file because I need it for Intel Fortran support.  But I still think gcc.x86_64 should bring in glibc-devel.x86_64 since it can't build anything without it.  Current discussion on fedora-devel suggests:

Requires: glibc-devel%{__isa}
Comment 7 Orion Poplawski 2009-03-10 11:51:37 EDT
Oops just one underscore:

Requires: glibc-devel%{_isa}
Comment 8 Jakub Jelinek 2009-08-03 05:21:47 EDT
That's incorrect.  gcc can of course build stuff even with just glibc-devel.i[56]86 installed.  Of course just 32-bit, not 64-bit.
