Re: Arch conflicts between i386, x86_64 with redhat-artwork



Thanks, Brian.  That seems to have done the trick.  It would certainly
be nice to handle the multiple architectures better, though I guess
this is specific to only AMD64 based systems.
What would be even nicer is for it to not be an all or nothing design,
but for it to install the updates that will work, skipping the ones
that won't.  I think the current scheme is a poor one, though it's
probably much simpler than trying to figure out which ones can be
installed and which cannot.
