Hey, spot!

After reading spot's post, I wanted to try out chromium. Shortly after installing it, I realized that name resolution stopped working.

The problem? Installing chromium.i586 pulled in nss-mdns.i586 on my x86_64 system. I installed nss-mdns.x86_64 and the problem went away.

Whee!

Want to use chromium on x86_64? Do this:
cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/chromium.repo <<'END'
[chromium]
name=Chromium Test Packages
baseurl=http://spot.fedorapeople.org/chromium/F$releasever/
enabled=0
gpgcheck=0
END

yum --enablerepo=chromium install chromium nss-mdns.x86_64

Hrm. That's weird. I'll fix it in the next build so it isn't arch-locked like that.
