what is package coloring :)

After upgrade some packages in pld i got sth like this:
Retrieving ac-updates-security::pdksh-5.2.14-46.i686.rpm...
.............................. 100.0% [231.7K (231.7K/s)]
error: pdksh-5.2.14-46.i686 package color (0) is not equal to pdksh-5.2.14-46.i686.rpm's one (1)
There were package coloring mismatches. Proceed? [N/y]

WTF is this? (It is my fav question in case of any problem :P)

google, as usually was my best friend!

So... package coloring has been made for double architecure systems (in RPM). Packages and files are colored in case of architecture they are made for. Dependencies are checked in field of the same color.

Why in single architecture system I got this error? Because it is has two different (i686 and... noarch :) )
