Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 147263
the appearance of the arch ia32e should be limited
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:19:15 EDT
Description of problem:
In several components (Fedora Core, Fedora extras, ...) the arch ia32e is shown.
This is not needed and confusing as there is little difference between x86_64
and ia32e; this makes bugzilla usage hard and confusing without a reason. So
IMHO the ia32e should only shown in the chooser for RHEL (maybe only RHEL3?)
where it is needed: Quoting:
from Arjan van de Ven:
>> While at it and just out of curiosity -- why to we have both ia32e and
>> x86_64 as possible archs in bugzilla.redhat.com?
>because for RHEL3 we had to do a second kernel rpm because we couldn't
>retrofit em64t support into the kernel within the compability and stability
>contraints rhel3 updates have.
>> I'm just wondering if that is (still?) needed...
>not for anything not RHEL3.
Unfortunately the arch list is global to all products and cannot be manipulated
depending on which product you are submitting against. This is a design flaw of
Bugzilla and will be best tackled by the upstream Bugzilla community.
