Description Adam Pribyl 2006-07-14 11:32:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Having i586 system I tried to install kernel-devel headers with 
yum install kernel-devel
yum chooses for some reason to install i686 even thought the kernel arch is i586.
rpm -q --queryformat '%{ARCH} %{NAME}\n' kernel-devel kernel
i686 kernel-devel
i586 kernel
i586 kernel

On different i686 system using same yum command resulted in kernel-devel for
i586 to be installed.

I did not found a reason for this behaivour.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. on i586 system: rpm -e kernel-devel
2. yum install kernel-devel

Actual results:
yum chooses to install i686 kernel-devel rpm which does not fit the kernel

Expected results:
yum installs i586 kernel-devel rpm

Additional info:
This may be a problem of yum not of the kernel-devel package.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-07-26 10:32:00 EDT
What is in /etc/rpm/platform?
Comment 2 Adam Pribyl 2006-07-31 06:18:16 EDT
Those were set incorretly. Probably by copiing install from different platform.
