Please, someone, shoot multilib

Please take multilib outside and put it out of its misery.

Yes. Because the i386 package was once installed and then removed, multilib has left a corrupted fucking file.

    rpm won’t remove a file which is owned by two pkgs. It will leave it there.

    so, unless this file was ghosted in place or something else equally dumb I don’t think your culprit is multilib.

      I think the problem is the file is different in the two packages, because it contains an architecture-specific string. No excuse for breaking things though.
