Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 505142
Preupgrade results in i586 instead of i686
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:09:47 EST
Description of problem:
When using preupgrade for moving from F10 to F11 my architecture switched from i686 to i586.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest from F10 available.
Just execute preupgrade.
Latest f10.i686 kernel and packages replaced by default i586 ones.
To have i686 kernel and packages.
Initial smolt profile.
I have found some discussion with this specific message:
If I understand it correctly from notice  in the very end of that message, my device will get i586 and that is not a mistake but some change in naming convention.
If it is true, I would expect some information in the Release notes. Right now I couldn`t find anything there.
The first page of the Fedora 11 Release Notes (Section 1.4) suggests that you check the Common Bugs page.
On that page, you'll find this:
Hope that helps clear up any remaining confusion.
Thank you for quick answer. I still suggest having more clear information in release notes because this is feature not a bug and normally explanation is expected to be somewhere in Architecture part of RN.
