User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1
Description of problem:
x86info isn't included in the package for x86-64
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: x86info: command not found
Expected Results: Same info as when 32-bit OS is installed on that CPU
The i386 binary works just fine if copied over (modulo the udev problem described in #155491).
getting it building native on x86-64 requires a few non-trivial changes, so I
recommend just using the i386 binary for rhel4.
Reassigning to comps.

I've updated x86info to upstream version 1.20, which adds support for a good
number of newer processors, as well as support for building/running on x86_64.
Featured in kernel-utils-2.4-13.1.104.
