[root@z3 ~]# uname -a
Linux z3 2.6.18-128.16.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Mar 23 14:06:23 EDT 2010 ia64 ia64 ia64 GNU/Linux
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. register to z-stream for 5.3.z
2. yum install gdb
only .ia64 version installs
bot ia64 and i386 versions should be able to install. Besides that, installing both of them is the default when doing "yum install gdb".
There was no 5.3.z release of GDB.
readline.i386 is shipped with RHEL-5.3:
# rpm -q redhat-release
# yum install readline.i386
No package readline.i386 available.
I can confirm the problem exists but it is specific to RHN and I do not know RHN.
readline-5.1-1.1.i386.rpm is still missing from 5.3.z and 5.3.ll ia64 channels. Proposing for 5.3.ll.
