Is this hardware generally available? If not, what's the possibilty of sending it to our Durham site so we can reproduce this prior to release? Time is SHORT -- RC2 is 21-Aug. Please reply ASAP.

Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-17 11:48:54 EDT
The traceback is because the kernel (via uname) reports the arch is i?86 (yes ?). RPM tries to match up packages with the architecture, so it finds no matches, causes the problem you saw. There are additional issues related to this which are kernel related. I'm assigning this bug to the kernel team.
Comment 7 Michael K. Johnson 2000-08-17 11:54:51 EDT
There are many potential problems here. Intel says that our current kernel, lacking FXSAVE/FXRESTOR, will simply not work reliably with the P4. I patched procfs to return 6 instead of ? (UGLY patch) and will do the same for the uname system call.
