Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 39266
kernel-2.4.3-2.14.19.athlon install problem
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:05 EDT
Description of Problem:
rpm -ivh kernel-126.96.36.199.14.19.athlon.rpm fails to install as rpm reports
that it is for the wrong architecture.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Acquire an athlon processor/motherboard combo
2. Install Red Hat Linux
3. Attempt to upgrade the kernel to 2.4.3-2.14.19 using the athlon rpm
4. Note the failure.
5. Note that the rpm can be installed via the --ignorearch flag to rpm.
The rpm is installed correctly
uname -a shows:
Linux athlon.arm.org 2.4.3-2.14.19 #1 Fri May 4 18:40:42 EDT 2001 i686
Should the machine now show athlon rather than i686?
Jeff: Wasn't this assumed to be fixed for 7.1 ?
Re the uname: athlons are "i686 class" and are reporting themselves as such.
The athlon patch is not in rpm-4.0.2 in 7.1, should be in rpm-4.0.3-0.6.
