Summary: yum installs i586 packages on x86_64 which easily
results in serious breakage
Product: openSUSE 10.3
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 10.3
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Other
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: janneke-list@xxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx
Found By: Other


The default installation of yum has in /etc/yum.conf:

exactarchlist=kernel-bigsmp, kernel-debug, kernel-default,
kernel-dummy,kernel-iseries64, kernel-ppc64, kernel-s390, kernel-smp,
kernel-syms, kernel-um, kernel-xen, kernel-xenpae, glibc

which makes that I got:



root@peder:~# yum install xorg-x11

opensuse-updates 100% |=========================| 1.2 kB 00:00

Is this ok [y/N]: y

which results in, for example:

root@peder:~# ldd `which gdm`|grep found
libXdmcp.so.6 => not found

not good.

It can be fixed my commenting-out the exactarchlist entry, or possibly
by including something like:

exclude=*.i386* *.i586* *.i686*

$ yum --version
3.2.4
