Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 509262
Attempting to remove only an i386 package from x86_64 box also removes x86_64 package
Last modified: 2009-09-10 14:44:55 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to uninstall only the i386 version of a package from an x86_64 box, the x86_64 package of the same name is also removed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install both i386 and x86_64 versions of the same package onto an x86_64 box (The version used in my case was RHEL5u3)
2. Schedule to remove only the i386 version of the package.
3. Run rhn_check
Both the i386 and x86_64 packages are removed.
Only the specified version of the package should have been removed.
The RHEL 5.3 client does not have this code fix. This was/should be fixed within the RHEL 5.4 beta client code - see bug 476899 tracking the RHEL 5.4 release.
Please re-test this with the RHEL 5.4 client. To me looks like the server side (from rhn_check output) correctly sent down the arch information needed.
Confirmed. 5.4 client performs as expected.
Release Pending. Used z205.z900.redhat.com as the client, test1182.test.redhat.com as the Satellite, with the following RHN client packages:
