Tried to remove beagle per something I saw here. Was going to do "zypper
remove *beagle*" followed by "zypper addlock *beagle*".
When I executed the first command, it reported "Beagle not installed."
(I may have removed it earlier, as well as deactivating it with
chkconfig, then forgot that I had done so.)
But zypper then reported "Checking package dependencies" and proceeded
to downgrade a whole host of packages from their x86_64 form to the i586
In a word, "Whaaat?". Can anyone explain to me why this occurred, and if
this is a bug.
There's probably some gnome package depending on libbeagle1.
I can't believe Mono is compiled into all those apps as
libbeagle1 is not written in Mono. It's just a small library that
can talk to the beagle server. If no server is installed, it doesn't
nor can I believe that my machine architecture changed.
That's actually a glitch in the solver, it tries a bit too hard
to find a solution. (It's also a communication issue between zypper
and the solver, zypper doesn't tell it that it mustn't install
*beagle* packages, so the solver is allowed to switch over to the
32bit version of libbeagle.)
The 11.2 version of the solver will be a bit more reluctant to
switch the architecture.
