I have found some discussion with this specific message:


If I understand it correctly from notice [3] 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.
