Description Andrey 2009-06-10 15:35:09 EDT
Description of problem:

When using preupgrade for moving from F10 to F11 my architecture switched from i686 to i586.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Latest from F10 available.

How reproducible:

Just execute preupgrade.

Actual results:

Latest f10.i686 kernel and packages replaced by default i586 ones.


Expected results:

To have i686 kernel and packages.

I have found some discussion with this specific message:

http://osdir.com/ml/fedora-test-list/2009-04/msg00343.html

If I understand it correctly from notice [3] in the very end of that message, my device will get i586 and that is not a mistake but some change in naming convention.

If it is true, I would expect some information in the Release notes. Right now I couldn`t find anything there.

The first page of the Fedora 11 Release Notes (Section 1.4) suggests that you check the Common Bugs page. 

On that page, you'll find this:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F11_bugs#Can.27t_find_.i686_kernel

Hope that helps clear up any remaining confusion.

Thank you for quick answer. I still suggest having more clear information in release notes because this is feature not a bug and normally explanation is expected to be somewhere in Architecture part of RN.
