Description James Antill 2008-10-30 19:31:42 EDT
Description of problem:
 Since yum-3.2.10 or so upstream yum no longer supports anything but ia64 and noarch packages on ia64 (on the advise of Fedora people), but RHEL-5 still ships at least .i386 and .i686 packages in the ia64 RHN channels.

 Changing this is a trivial one line fix, but this BZ is mainly a "which is right" (I'm guessing RHEL/RHN) ... but also so I can get the flags to fix it.

...I assume we need the above to be i686 so we can get the glibc/openssl .i686 packages?
Comment 4 Jan Hutař 2008-10-31 09:28:04 EDT
Hello Denis, what are correct secondary archs for ia64 RHEL-5 system? Is i386 and noarch enough?
Thank you in advance,
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2008-10-31 12:24:43 EDT
I'd think just a patch to revert rpmUtils/arch.py to prior should be fine; there's no need to worry about optimizations w.r.t. i686.
