Description Lev Makhlis 2005-04-20 16:34:16 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  x86info: command not found

Expected Results:  Same info as when 32-bit OS is installed on that CPU

Additional info:

The i386 binary works just fine if copied over (modulo the udev problem described in #155491).
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-09-23 17:50:38 EDT
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.

Comment 6 Jarod Wilson 2007-06-14 15:45:45 EDT
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.
