That's exactly my problem.  I have dmraid.i686 installed, so it is looking 
for glibc.i386, etc..etc..etc.  I don't have many packages that rely on 
glibc, but just enough to annoy me.

Any other solution I can try?  The only thing I've thought of is to make the 
base yum repository exclude everything non i386 and have updates open to 
all, in the theory that if there is something already i386 that it can 
update it, but otherwise, I don't want it to install anything new i386 when 
I search for it.

Is there a better solution?  Is there another way to configure yum to only 
look for x86_64 pkgs?
