Description James Manning 2001-09-03 23:24:54 EDT
Description of Problem:
multiple archs of same package (particularly, glibc and i386 and i686) are 
fetched, which seems wasteful

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
up2date-2.6.0-7.x.31

How Reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. stock RC1
2. up2date -u (in this case, text mode, no $DISPLAY)

Actual Results:
glibc-2.2.4-11.i386.rpm:
########################## Done.
########################## Done.
glibc-2.2.4-11.i686.rpm:
########################## Done.
########################## Done.


Expected Results:
just the i686 version :)

Additional Information:
I could see this as a wontfix, esp. given the need to patch in arch 
support at the last minute, but I wanted to get it in a report regardless
Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2001-09-04 13:20:13 EDT
This should be fixed in the next version of the client.
(more accurately checking of packages based on arches...)

New behaviouor is to upgrade to the the package whose
arch matches that of the version currently installed.

Verified for i686.
