Issue

  • While comparing packages installed on two systems, RHN Satellite gets confused about package/version availability for i386 and x86_64 packages.
  • When we compare package profiles of two systems on satellite v 5.3 then if there is a package installed on both system with architecture i386 and x86_64 then entries are not shown properly.
For example : 

     alsa-lib        1.0.17-1.el5.i386                             This system only
     alsa-lib                     1.0.14-1.rc4.el5.x86_64     server1.example.com only
     alsa-lib      1.0.17-1.el5.x86_64                               This system only
     alsa-lib                     1.0.14-1.rc4.el5.i386       server1.example.com only
