Description Owen Taylor 2009-04-18 11:05:04 UTC
On an x86_64 Fedora Rawhide system

 gpk-install-package-name gstreamer-devel 

Wants to install both i586 and x86_64 packages of everything, while:

 yum install gstreamer-devel 

Only installs the x86_64 packages. Maybe this is intentional, but it seems strange to me.
Comment 1 Owen Taylor 2009-08-06 12:45:10 UTC
Any progress here? 

(This is making things very unpleasant for people trying to build gnome-shell on x86_64, we use gpk-install-package-name to install missing deps, but it fails for x86_64 because of this problem and conflicts, so people do things manually and miss packages, and have weird problems 10 minutes into the build...)

Sorry for the delay!
