Comment 1 Jan Zeleny 2010-06-29 08:27:31 UTC
This looks more like yum issue, because there is no explicit 32bit dependency in openldap-clients. Here is a requires list for openldap-clients-2.6.21-6:

openldap = 2.4.21-6.fc13
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1

I'm reassigning this to yum, if this turns out to be an openldap issue after all, feel free to reassign it back.

Comment 2 seth vidal 2010-06-29 12:12:29 UTC
Can you provide the depsolve output with a yum -d 7


Comment 3 Amit Shah 2010-06-29 12:26:47 UTC

Output of 'yum -d 7 install openldap-clients'

The output was too large to fit in the bug comment; attaching file with the debug info instead.

Comment 4 seth vidal 2010-06-29 12:42:09 UTC
 Could you try a couple of things for me?

1. Could you grab the yum out of rawhide and run the same command and see if the output changes.

2. Could you edit /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packagesa/yum/depsolve.py 

and on line 539
insert a
print pkgresults

b/c what you're getting and what the code (and debug) says you should be getting don't match up.

Output of 'yum -d 7 openldap-clients' after modifying depsolve.py as requested.

Comment 6 seth vidal 2010-06-29 17:10:43 UTC
okay - after some discussion on irc here's what's going on.

Amit had a newer version of openldap.x86_64 from updates-testing installed.

so he ran: yum install openldap-clients which tries to install the older x86_64 version. It has a dep of:
openldap = 2.4.21-4.fc13

Yum goes to look for pkgs which provide that and finds:

since it has a newer ver of the .x86_64 one and the i686 one provides the requirement,it takes the i686 one.

So - if openldap had an arch-specific requirement there then yum would have simply said it cannot resolve the dep and the results would be a lot more obvious.

back over to openldap.

Comment 7 Jan Zeleny 2010-07-07 10:58:14 UTC
I'm closing this bug, because situation described in comment 6 has been created by improper installation of openldap package. If installed properly, this situation won't occur.

Comment 8 James Antill 2010-07-07 14:14:59 UTC
Jan, while I mostly agree ... you might want to change the requirement to use %{_isa}.

Comment 9 Jan Zeleny 2010-07-07 14:36:26 UTC
I'm still considering it. I'm not sure whether it's a good practice or not, because I haven't seen it in any other package yet.
