Er... So why did a missing update result in pulling down i586 packages
rather than a dependency check failure?


if I had to guess it worked like this:

the dep was provided by two pkgs - the i586 one and the x86_64 one.

but the dep itself was not arch-specific.

So yum said: I can only find an i586 pkg providing this, so I'll install that.

Normally yum would say: I have an i586 and an x86_64 pkg - x86_64 is better if: (the requiring package is also x86_64 or if the system is an x86_64)

but in this case it could not and it satisfied the dep however it could.
