Description of problem:
I changed my motherboard from a Celeron to an Athlon.
When launching up2date after the fact I noted it was still
upgrading the kernel packages with i686.rpm instead of athlon.rpm
The kernel and I assume kudzu found the change but this wasn't
propagated to /etc/rpm/platform , as a result rpm/up2date/...
will not use the new patchform informations for upgrades.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.upgrade your processor
2.launch up2date on kernel upgrade
3.see up2date using the older arch
Actual Results: /etc/rpm/platform was kept as is.
Expected Results: Ideally kudzu should keep /etc/rpm/platform up to
date on processor
