Description Gerd v. Egidy 2016-07-27 11:59:00 UTC
Description of problem:

Currently there is no proper way for the user or a script to read out the content of the $basearch variable used by dnf, e.g. in the repo defintion files in /etc/yum.repos.d/

Using "uname -m" doesn't work, it returns e.g. "armv7l" while the proper $basearch is "armhfp".

This was already a problem with yum:
http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/19701/yum-how-can-i-view-variables-like-releasever-basearch-yum0
But the solutions provided there don't work with dnf anymore and do not look like stable interfaces to me.

I think "dnf config-manager --dump" should also output basearch.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dnf-plugins-core-0.1.21-2.fc24

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf config-manager --dump | grep basearch

Actual results:
<empty>

Expected results:
basearch = armhfp

Created new option for this:

 dnf config-manager --dump-variables

you can combine it with --dump if want both variables and configuration options.
