Description David Lamm 2001-04-06 03:18:35 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-0.1.28 i586)

 Tyan Trinity ATX  Model S1598
 VIA chipset, K6-2 500 MHz

This seems similar to bug 28990, but I decided to submit a new bug since
this is from the Wolverine Beta release.

"UP2DATE-2.4.4-1"   reports an "Invalid Architecture and OS release
Combination" and "INFO  Release 7.0.91 on i586".

I have included the output of "rpm -qi redhat-release" below as in bug

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run up2date agent 2.4.4-1

guys, are you supporting i586 on the server side?

Comment 2 David Lamm 2001-04-11 05:42:09 UTC
I'm not sure if this helps, but the earlier versions of "up2date", the ones that
allowed anonymous updates, work.  I can actually use them today to get the new
"packages" from the server.
I could use one of these, but I'd much rather use the newer ones, which provide
the "-p  profile" updates.

Installed 7.1 last night and the problem still exists!

Comment 4 David Lamm 2001-04-18 19:29:59 UTC
Woo-Hoo, the problem is fixed!!  Was able to use Up2date today without any errors.

You may not hear this often enough, but thanks for all the hard work you guys
put into making Redhat the best Linux distro out there!  I know some people can
get a little snippy, including myself, but you guys are doing a great job!

Thanks again,
