Bug Description

new bug report as requested by Martin Pitt at the end of bug #804709.

with the subsequent week's worth of beta updates the situation has changed somewhat. jockey now displays two entries for ATI proprietary drivers, one of which (ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX) works, and one of which (ATI Fire GL) gives the previously reported error. i'll try to attach a screenshot of the jockey-gtk window to this report so you can see what i mean.

the second entry there now installs the fglrx drivers without error, so that's great. but what's with the first entry? when attempting to activate that first entry the error originally reported is still thrown by jockey, that is: "SystemError: E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages."

this could be at the very least very confusing for a lot of people.

fyi running jockey-text gives the following output:

root@xxxxx:~# jockey-text -l
kmod:fglrx - ATI Fire GL (Proprietary, Disabled, Not in use)
xorg:fglrx - ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver (Proprietary, Enabled, In use)

root@xxxxx:~# jockey-text -e kmod:fglrx
SystemError: E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

also this 64-bit system is testing an upgrade from natty to oeneric, if that info is of any use.

ok, hope you can get it sorted,
if it stays that way for oeneric release, and others are affected, you'll surely get a swag of bug reports,

Ah, nice one. It picks up the "fglrx:i386" multiarch package, and as we don't have a custom handler for that it just makes one up on the fly. I'll just fix the backend to ignore packages for an architecture other than the system one.

Thanks for the report!

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * data/handlers/ Use the correct name for the module and for the
    package in (LP: #855396)

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * jockey/, package_header_modaliases(): Only consider packages for
    the system architecture. This avoids creating non-working default handlers
    for e. g. fglrx:i386 on an amd64 system. (LP: #855175)
  * Drop data/handlers/, it's installed by default now.
