Thanks for that one. I already added the exclude statement to my yum

There are two questions:
Why does yum install i386 at all? 
Why doesn't yum check for conflicts on a groupinstall? So obviously it
must be using using "rpm -i --force", which is pretty dangerous.

Another question about your bug 235756: Why is it still assigned to
"Anaconda Maintenance Team" instead of the yum owner?
