RPM multiarch/multilib Q (x864_64 vs sparc64 lands)



Hi !

	I would like to Q and clarify for me how multilib/multiarch work.

As I experience practicaly, if I have x86_64 glibc instaled on an amd64 for e.g
i take rpm -ivh glibc*i686 and no problem rpm "decide" to not conflict with x86_64 and install smoothly inteligently,
guessing that ppc/ppc64 too works in the same way (dont have the hw to play)

If I do "yum list | grep glibc-" I will see clearly it is there booth i686 and x86_64.

	I have problems doing this on sparc/sparc64 lands in a FC2T3 enviroment (wich maintained for myself):

I allready have glibc-2.3.3-25.sparc.rpm installed but I want 64 bit ones too:
------------------------------------------//////////-------------------------->
[root sun RPMS]# rpm -ivh sparc64/glibc-2.3.3-25.sparc64.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
        package glibc-2.3.3-25 is already installed
        file /sbin/ldconfig from install of glibc-2.3.3-25 conflicts with file from package glibc-2.3.3-25
        file /sbin/sln from install of glibc-2.3.3-25 conflicts with file from package glibc-2.3.3-25
        file /usr/sbin/glibc_post_upgrade from install of glibc-2.3.3-25 conflicts with file from package glibc-2.3.3-25
        file /usr/sbin/iconvconfig from install of glibc-2.3.3-25 conflicts with file from package glibc-2.3.3-25
-----------------------------------------/////////-------------------------------------->

I know is little bit I am maybe offtopic because FC not suport yet sparcs:

	It is clear that not work in case of sparc64/sparc, but again the Q: this multilib is done from sort of rpmrc script or some other macro file
or must see rpm sourcecode whats happening there ? Maybe someone lead me to exact source of problem.

	Any hint/suggestion is welcome !

as Obs,i was using rpm-4.3.1-0.1 to be no doubt.


Thanks,

cristian.
