Tim,

Maybe you have i386 excluded from your repo file (I do as well).  I 
think this is a yum issue, and it is meeting the requirement with the 
wrong package because it can.  This issue is caused because the i386 
devel packages are in the tree ... are they supposed to be?

But I don't think we can fix it except to ask redhat to do it, if 
apr-devel.i386 is in the upstream repo that is.

OK ... I just checked in RHN and apr-devel-1.2.7-11.i386 is in the x86_64.

Thanks,
Johnny Hughes
