I sent the system to Doug Ledford I checked the Airborne status and it arrive
at RedHat on 14 August D. Long signed for the system. Any question please
contact me directly. Rogelio_Noriega@Dell.Com
The traceback is because the kernel (via uname) reports the arch is i?86 (yes
RPM tries to match up packages with the architecture, so it finds no matches,
causes the problem you saw.
There are additional issues related to this which are kernel related.
I'm assigning this bug to the kernel team.
There are many potential problems here. Intel says that our
current kernel, lacking FXSAVE/FXRESTOR, will simply not work
reliably with the P4.
I patched procfs to return 6 instead of ? (UGLY patch) and will
do the same for the uname system call.
