The result is that instead of getting the newer version for .x86_64, you get the newer version for i386.  Yum should have selected libgfortran44.x86_64 here, not only because the user explicitly specified .x86_64, but because the system is native x86_64.

Comment 1 seth vidal 2010-05-18 15:20:15 UTC
can you run:

yum list libgfortran\*

and paste the output.

Comment 2 arth 2010-05-18 17:17:36 UTC
The system in question has already got the problem fixed by explicitly installing libgfortran44.x86_64, so "yum list" won't be representative.
But from a different system where nothing has been done yet, it's replicable:

# yum list 'libgfortran*'

Can you run the following command:

repoquery -q --obsoletes libgfortran44.x86_64
repoquery -q --obsoletes libgfortran44.i386

Comment 4 arth 2010-05-18 17:43:17 UTC
[root@gvrsimeng01 sbin]# repoquery -q --obsoletes libgfortran44.x86_64
[root@gvrsimeng01 sbin]# repoquery -q --obsoletes libgfortran44.i386  
[root@gvrsimeng01 sbin]# repoquery -q --obsoletes libgfortran43.x86_64
[root@gvrsimeng01 sbin]# repoquery -q --obsoletes libgfortran43.i386

libgfortran43

Comment 7 James Antill 2010-05-18 19:38:02 UTC
Ok, I have an upstream testcase for this.

Comment 8 James Antill 2010-05-18 21:32:27 UTC
We have upstream fixes now, both for this case and for if libgfortran33 was noarch.

I've marked this BZ to be considered for 5.6.
