Description of problem:
Updating a RHEL 2.1AS (i686) system with up2date installs the package
redhat-release-as-2.1AS-11 replacing redhat-release-as-2.1AS-8.
The new release of this package appears to be specific to the Itanium,
although the server being updated is an i686.
/etc/issue now reports the release as 'Derry' instead of 'Pensacola'
and the release notes in /usr/share/doc/redhat-release-as-2.1AS are
for the Itanium.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update an existing RHEL 2.1AS i686 system using up2date
Actual Results: redhat-release-as replaced with ia64 version
Expected Results: Retain existing architecture specific files
Where did you get the ia64 package from? Was it from RHN?
Yes it was from RHN.
FYI, the version on the ISO images appear to be correct.
Only the RHN version is wrong.
The redhat-release packages changed from noarch to arch in 2.1 Update 6. This
should no longer be a problem.
