Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 154552
Inaccurate message when you try installing a different architecture
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:03 EST
Description of problem:
I accidentally installed the i386 Fedora Core 3 on an AMD 64.
Having noticed this, I stuck the x86_64 DVD in the machine to
see if it would "upgrade". It said this:
The arch of the release of Fedora Core you are upgrading to
appears to be i386 which does not match your previously
installed arch of x86_64. This is likely to not succeed. Are
you sure you wish to continue the upgrade process?
That is, it got the architectures the wrong way around in the message.
[Of course, it didn't upgrade properly. It would be nice if that worked,
but I'm only here to report the error message.]
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The standard Fedora Core 3 install DVD.
I only made that mistake once. :-)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 3 i386 edition on an x86_64 processor.
2. Insert Fedora Core 3 x86_64 edition DVD.
3. Boot and ask to upgrade the existing installation.
Fixed in CVS
