offending rpm

Description of problem:

I am unable to install a custom rpm from my local repository.
All custom rpms in this repository show from other server trying to install it via yum install, except for this one.

I cannot imagine why this would happen for only one rpm, unless there is something wrong with the rpm. 

Doesn't yum just look at an rpm file and install it?

I cannot install this crucial rpm as a result via yum. 
I verified it is in the repository (createrepo -v --update .) and I checked the repository metadata (zcat x86_64/repodata/*.gz | grep mycustomrpm) and it shows up.

I did notice that running a rpm -ivvh showed some information that it's built for i386 it seems, so I added it to my i386 repository but I imagine yum see's it's an x86_64 system and then doesn't utilize this repository. I can't imagine this is the issue though because I've install i386 packages on x86 system before.

I also tried yum install custompackage.i386 to specify i386 repo but it still doesn't see it.

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

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.6 (Tikanga)

Linux ip-10-24-14-20 2.6.18-238.9.1.el5xen #1 SMP Fri Mar 18 12:53:42 EDT 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

[root@ ~]# rpm -qa | grep yum       

How reproducible:
Ever time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1 I added a custom rpm to my local yum repository.
2 I ran createrepo --update . 
3 I try to run yum install customrpm, and it doesn't see it.
Actual results:

Loaded plugins: amazon-id, fastestmirror, priorities, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirror.symnds.com
 * extras: mirror.symnds.com
 * update: mirror.ash.fastserv.com
44 packages excluded due to repository priority protections
Setting up Install Process
No package SumoLogic available.
Nothing to do

Expected results:

It installs the RPM via yum

I've downloaded the RPM, and queried it.  The package name is SumoCollector-19.9-2-1.i386

Seems you have tried to install "SumoLogic".  Try installing "SumoCollector" instead.
