Description of problem:
rpm-4.1-0.63 (and 0.62) packages appear to be broken.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upgrade to the current (4.1-0.63) packages
2.try to use the new packages.
Actual Results: Rpm system becomes completely broken (i.e. refueses to install
new packages and gives odd messages with rpm -Va)
Expected Results: Rpm would work.
Several different error messages are generated:
When a new package is installed rpm reports that "the package is designed for an
i386 or alternatively a noarch architecture" (I am pretty sure that my
architecture (Athlon/i686) is i386 compatible and I am definitely sure that my
system is noarch compatible.
When the rpm database is verified using rpm -Va many packages give a message
like warning: The :B: dependency needs an epoch (assuming same epoch as "A")
A = "gtk+ 1:1.2.10-21" B = "gtk+ >= 1.2.5"
I solved the problem by compiling 4.1-0.53 from source and and installing. I am
pretty sure that this is not a very useful work around, especially since the 4.1
source was no so easy to come by without copying it from a source rpm installed
on another machine (running 4.1-0.53).
Alread fixed, an athlon with CMOV misidentifies as
