Description andrew m. boardman 2004-07-21 21:19:04 EDT
While it is understood that RHEL <i>supports</i> only a limited subset
of hardware configurations, it would be very very nice to have i386
and i586 kernel packages, even if unsupported.  We've got a large and
diverse user community, and no shortage of i586 machines that have
been left behind in the upgrade to RHEL 3.0.

This is a feature request, not a bug.
Comment 2 Suzanne Hillman 2004-07-27 16:02:15 EDT
Internal RFE bug #128671 entered; will be considered for future releases.
Comment 3 dff 2004-08-15 18:11:29 EDT
We're not planning to add i386/i586 kernel packages to current or
future versions of RHEL.
