I'm doing my semi-annual penance by doing yum upgrade to rawhide.
I'll write up my notes soonish (it's not that bad, but not exactly for
beginners), but had a question.

I'm on x86_64, and I've removed all the i386 packages. :-)  I want to
update several yum groups, with:

yum groupinstall Base
yum groupinstall 'GNOME Desktop Environment'

unfortunately, this pulls in piles of i386 packages for no obvious
reason, when I really only need a few new x86_64 packages.

How can I get yum groupinstall to not pull in the i386 packages?
Does yum install yum-basearchonly work?

Thanks for the pointer, but no, it doesn't help.

Adding a exclude=*.i?86 to the yum configuration should help.

Kind regards,

Jeroen van Meeuwen
