Description Horst H. von Brand 2005-01-20 09:07:01 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
By mistake, I said:

   rpmbuild --rebuild --target x86_86 milter-greylist-1.7.4-1.src.rpm

and sure enough, got a package under RPMS/x86_86.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --rebuild --target x86_86 milter-greylist-1.7.4-1.src.rpm

Actual Results:  Got a x86_86 package

Expected Results:  Error message: "No such architecture." Or at least
"Can't build for that architecture"

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2005-01-20 13:11:38 EST
you are assuming that there are deep semantic interpretations
to rpm's interpretation of arch. this is demonstrably not true, 
as rpm already has 6 too many ppc* architectures than objectively

so if you want to build for x86_86 (or amd64 or pentium5 or any
other arch string), have at!
