    Hi,

    Anybody running Fedora 8 on a PS3?
    I've got plenty of duplicate RPMs ppc and ppc64.

    As far as I understand the PS3 can run as a ppc32 and ppc64.
    But Fedora 8 does not seem to allow for both in all cases

    For instance

    1) alsa-lib-devel: I've got installed the version for ppc64, and when I try to add the version ppc I get an error because both RPMs provide the same documentation in the same path

    2) I've got installed gdb-ppc and gdb-ppc64 but they both report to provide /usr/bin/gdb which in my case is the ppc32 version. And I can only debug ppc applications. Not ppc64.

    How is it supposed to work?
    The only RPMs that seem to coexist are the ones providing libraryes, since there are 2 different directories /usr/lib and /usr/lib64.
