Error: Missing Dependency: libreadline.so.5 is needed by package gdb-6.8-27.el5.i386 (rhel-ia64-server-5.3.z)
[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):
see above

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. register to z-stream for 5.3.z
2. yum install gdb
Actual results:
only .ia64 version installs

Expected results:
bot ia64 and i386 versions should be able to install. Besides that, installing both of them is the default when doing "yum install gdb".

Additional info:

Comment 1 Jan Kratochvil 2011-01-04 19:03:19 UTC
There was no 5.3.z release of GDB.

readline.i386 is shipped with RHEL-5.3:

# hostname
# 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.

Comment 2 Tomas Kopecek 2011-03-07 15:36:28 UTC
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.
