CentOS6.4 在yum groupinstall "General Purpose Desktop" "Desktop Platform" -y的时候报错如下:

Error:  Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root
       cause is something else and multilib version checking is just
       pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.:
       
         1. You have an upgrade for libXi which is missing some
            dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to
            solve this by installing an older version of libXi of the
            different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture
            yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package
            requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with
            --exclude libXi.otherarch ... this should give you an error
            message showing the root cause of the problem.
       
         2. You have multiple architectures of libXi installed, but
            yum can only see an upgrade for one of those arcitectures.
            If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you
            can remove the one with the missing update and everything
            will work.
       
         3. You have duplicate versions of libXi installed already.
            You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors.
       
       ...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove
       this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to
       do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing
       much more problems).
       
       Protected multilib versions: libXi-1.7.8-1.el6.x86_64 != libXi-1.6.1-3.el6.i686
Error: Protected multilib versions: libXext-1.3.3-1.el6.x86_64 != libXext-1.3.1-2.el6.i686

解决方法如下:

yum update libXi libXext libXrender -y
yum install libXi-1.6.1-3.el6.i686  libXext-1.3.1-2.el6.i686 -y

更新、安装以后,在重新yum groupinstall "General Purpose Desktop" "Desktop Platform" -y 即可。
