Is there a way to mark the 32-bit kernel incompatible with x86_64? That

off that class of bugs we see occasionally where a 32-bit kernel is

installed on a 64-bit system.

It is already marked as such:

%ifarch %ix86
Conflicts: libc.so.6()(64bit)
%endif

Ah ok. So if someone where to attempt to install it, it would want to
uninstall pretty much the entire system in favor of a 32-bit system. I
wonder if there's a stronger way to say "no, don't ever install this" to
zypper and friends.

sepie:~ # uname -m
x86_64
sepie:~ # LANG=en_US.UTF-8 zypper in kernel-pae
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

[...]

Although you never know with some users, I think most of them will
correctly interpret the above as "DO NOT EVEN THINK OF CHOOSING 1!" :).
I don't know of a better way unfortunately.

Sorry, I should've clarified. I essentially want to mark it Taboo so
that it doesn't show up in zypper search.
