The anaconda dump is attached along with the results of cat /proc/pci.

Is this hardware generally available?  If not, what's the possibilty of sending
it to our Durham site so we can reproduce this prior to release? Time is SHORT
-- RC2 is 21-Aug.  Please reply ASAP.

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

Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-17 15:48:54 UTC
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.

Comment 7 Michael K. Johnson 2000-08-17 15:54:51 UTC
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.
