  I've showed my problem before (yum crashed and packages are 
duplicated) but now I see that the same thing happened here:

  $ rpm -qa --qf "%{name}-%{arch}\n" | grep glibc | sort | uniq -c
       2 glibc-common-x86_64
       2 glibc-i686
       2 glibc-x86_64

  The bad news it that's a live system but it's working fine for now. I 
didn't have time to try to fix that yet. It's an Athlon64 processor and 
I've exactarch=1.
