Description Moritz Barsnick 2005-12-12 17:29:22 EST
Description of problem:
"ExclusiveArch: i386 x86_64" prevents building hdparm for i586 or i686

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --rebuild --target=i686 hdparm-6.3-1.1.src.rpm
Actual results:
error: Architecture is not included: i686

Expected results:
(builds correctly for i686)

Additional info:
I didn't find any assembler code or the likes. I realize that hdparm may have 
been written for x86, and therefore shouldn't compile on e.g. ppc. But I have 
yet to see hdparm not work when compiled for i686.

Unless I oversaw something, my recommendation is either
a) expand ExclusiveArch
b) use ExcludeArch
Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 2005-12-13 09:11:38 EST
Compiling a package as i686 makes sense only for a few, selected packages,
hdparm definitely isn't one of them. Transfer rates won't get up just because
the hdparm binary is faster...
