This comes from 32bit deps not being filtered out properly anymore
Comment 2 Thomas Backlund 2014-10-31 19:50:35 CET
Fixed in nvidia-current-340.46-2.mga5

similar fixes also done for  nvidia304-304.123-5.mga5 and fglrx-14.201-2.mga5

and the fixes will be in next beta1 iso builds

Resolution: (none) => FIXED
