I have x86_64 machines running RHEL5 and am trying to install snoopy through
the customized package handling machine configurations.

Since the machines are 32bit compatible, snoopy.i386 needs to be installed

So I've tried the following:

Requires: snoopy.i386
Requires: snoopy(i386)
Requires: snoopy-1.7.1-2.el.i386

Requires: snoopy.x86_64
Requires: snoopy(x86_64)
Requires: snoopy-1.7.1-2.el.x86_64

Any of those configurations give error in YUM saying that the package
specified above was not found and could not resolve dependency.

Though any of the packages above when installing through yum are found.

How do I configure this ?
