X86-64 problems, BIG TIME.


On my newly Installed x86-64 box. FC4 x86-64.
I have got all kinds of old,new, versions of packages.
I have got i386, x86-64 duplicate of the same packages.
I went into yumex and marked old versions, i386 versions of the same x86-64
packages and ran Remove ,and yumex ran for about an hour and didn't remove
anything.
Is there a way RPM can do the job, or perhaps Yum?

I'm going to take a stab in the dark referencing this one considering that I have yet to run fedora on a 64 bit box.

Ok,

Maybe not all packages are updated for the 64 bit platform.

Do you have additional respotories respotories installed regarding your yum config??
dries
freshrpms
ect
??

Have you performed

yum clean all
updatedb
then
yum update

That is what I would do.

Clean yum then update your db and then do a yum update.

I got rid of problem, I reinstalled my x86-64 box.
But what surprised me was seeing i386 and x86-64 packages of the same name
being installed, that sure puzzled me.

64-bit Distros have 64-bit packages that rely on 32-bit packages. It'll be awhile before we have a "pure" 64-bit OS...
