Been there, done that occasionally.  Scenarios like that just don't happen to
be part of what I meant by "generally".

But I'd have nothing against "purifying" x86_64 repos and instructing people
who need something from ix86 repos to enable them as well.  I suppose this is
something PackageKit could even suggest on demand.  Anyway I also suppose that
if it was this simple, it would have been done already.


if you want to purify x86_64 you can always add:

exclude=*.i[3456]86

to your yum.conf under [main]


-sv
