Hmm. :| Actually it looks like a packaging bug. nemiver-devel-0.5.1-1.fc9.i386 has a require of nemiver-0.5.1-1.fc9, which nemiver-0.5.1-1.fc9.x86_64 satisfies. Usually a -devel package will have a .so symlink to an actual library file that is in an arch specific package, which is how the arch specific multilib package gets pulled into the repo. What is it about the nemiver-devel.i386 that absolutely requires nemiver.i386 instead of nemiver.x86_64? -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
