Description Kai Meyer 2012-05-08 11:36:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Available rpms for python and python-devel on RHEL 6.2 are out of sync between x86_64 and i686. Therefore installing python-devel.i686 fails. If you select the older version of x86_64 packages (ie: with yumdowngrade) you can get them installed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Just have yum list python and python-devel packages.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum list python python-devel
Actual results:
Loaded plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin
Installed Packages
python.x86_64       2.6.6-29.el6      @rhel-x86_64-workstation-6
python-devel.x86_64 2.6.6-29.el6      @rhel-x86_64-workstation-6
Available Packages
python.i686         2.6.5-3.el6_0.2   rhel-x86_64-workstation-6 
python-devel.i686   2.6.5-3.el6_0.2   rhel-x86_64-workstation-6 

Expected results:
Versions to be the same.

I was going to open a new bug against boost for having similar behavior, but this looks like the right place to bring it up.

I'm actually more interested in making boost work correctly, but boost-python shows this behavior as well.

If you install boost\*-1.41.0-11.el6 boost\*-1.41.0-11.el6.i686, and then do a yum list boost\*, you'll see the following list of i686 pcakges that do not have a 1.41.0-11.el6_1.2 version.

$ sudo yum list boost boost.i686 boost-devel boost-devel.i686 boost-graph-mpich2 boost-graph-mpich2.i686 boost-mpich2 boost-mpich2.i686 boost-mpich2-devel boost-mpich2-devel.i686 boost-mpich2-python boost-mpich2-python.i686 boost-openmpi-devel boost-openmpi-devel.i686 boost-python boost-python.i686
