An hour ? You have indeed 100 OBS channels subscribed ?

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 ;-)

I cannot exclude i586 completely due to Sun's Java policy. How to use a
x86_64 Firefox with Java? Java 1.4 was the last Java that included the
browser plugins. Fedora includes icedtea, but I never get them running
on my machine, so I had to use i586 FF instead.

Why do I need Java in FF? I have to care for some Sun Servers, and the
remote access is managed via Java browser plugin... Konqueror and Opera
can't log in ("no cookie" alert, though it works on other websites), so
I'm bound to the gecko family. FF and SM need a plugin, whereas Konq
only needs the java executable. Bad luck for me.
