I've loaded Remi's Firefox 3 RPMs on a F8 system, so I have the
following packages:


For some reason, the latest F8 update wants to pull in Firefox 2 i386
package from F8 updates:

         cups-pdf                x86_64     2.4.8-1.fc8      updates            59 k
         devhelp                 x86_64     0.16.1-8.fc8     updates           199 k

         gnome-python2-gtkhtml2  x86_64     2.19.1-15.fc8    updates            18 k

         pcre                    x86_64     7.3-4.fc8        updates           138 k

         yelp                    x86_64     2.20.0-10.fc8    updates           715 k
        Installing for dependencies:
         firefox                 i386   updates            21 M

Note that the i386 package is pulled in even though all of the updates
are x86_64 or noarch.  Remi's i386 packages don't play nicely with his
x86_64 packages, though, so I can't install both.

Which package is pulling the F8 Firefox?  Any suggestions for a
