An hour ? You have indeed 100 OBS channels subscribed ?
Yes.

I can hardly imagine a usecase for this ...

Curiousity :-) And x86_64. Somewhere in the deeps of the repos are
up-to-date versions of x86_64 packages that don't bring i586 as
dependencies. At least I hope so. BTW, obs - a noarch pack - introduced
a lot of ruby i586 packages to my system... ;-)

that is just a stupid smart bug. it has nothing to do with the packages.
if smart sees a package where i586 is newer than x86_64 ... it blindly
installs that. yum has similar ideas sometimes but it can be tamed with
yum install|upgrade --exclude=\*i586\* <otherargs>

smart is not so smart sometimes.

That last is what I know :-) I read the smart mailing list... ;-)

I installed obs via YaST. The dependencies were not discovered by smart.

When I want to update package X, smart often tells me it is going to
install X in i586 as well as in x86_64. In the meantime, I'm used to
look at the packages smart wants to install before starting the run ;-)

Since Smart 0.52 release Christoph Thiel and Pascal Bleser have
updated it with some interesting patches. I also remember the case
where Smart wanted to install both i586 and x86_64, but weren't this
fixed with this patch?
* jue dic 06 2007 cthiel@xxxxxxx
- readded smart-trunk.patch (r899)
* improved x86_64 support: packages of color 2 (x86_64, etc) are
considered of higher precedence when compared to packages of color 1.
