Duplicate RPM entries

Monday, November 9th, 2009

I was seeing duplicate RPM entries for almost all the installed RPMs on my new x86_64 server running CentOS 5.3

After a bit of reading I found out that it is due to the i386 and x86_64 libraries being installed on my 64-bit machine.

A little more reading later and I found the solution, which is simply to specify a different query format for RPM

vi /etc/rpm/macros

%_query_all_fmt %%{name}-%%{version}-%%{release}.%%{arch}
