Description Peter Robinson 2009-08-14 09:25:18 UTC
As part of the move to i686 it was agreed that geode would be classed as i686 as it has cmov and it would be then supported as part of the mass recompile move to i686

Details are mentioned in the feature here:

Bill Nottingham mentioned here what was required for the support and evening included a patch.

I don't see the patch in rpm 4.7.1 nor as a custom patch to rawhide's rpm. 

What's more i've just tried to upgrade my Fit-PC gen 1 which has a Geode LX and it doesn't work and only shows noarch packages to upgrade.

This is an issue as its a pretty major change to x86 support and was discussed extensively on the list and is part of the requirement of the feature. It also means that the OLPC-XO is unsupported. I'm adding this as a alpha blocker as a result.

Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2009-08-14 16:57:42 UTC
I'm doing a build of rpm with the patch that notting posted.  Testing it would be great, then we can stick it in the Alpha RC I'm composing today.

Comment 2 Peter Robinson 2009-08-14 17:00:35 UTC
Jesse let me know when its built and I'll test it on my Fit-PC Geode box. That's the box where I discovered the issue when testing this morning.

Comment 3 James Laska 2009-08-14 17:13:38 UTC
Greetings Peter,

You can track the build that contains this fix at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1605441.

If you can provide test feedback, that would be appreciated!

Hi All,

Partial success. I think there might need to be an update to yum as well.

A plain i686 rpm works fine. Using a random package I maintain that i know has fairly basic requirements installed fine. It previously complained about architecture and to install rpm I had to use --ignorearch to override it.

[root@cypher ~]# rpm -Uvh ftp://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/development/i386/os/Packages/libccss-0.3.1-3.fc12.i686.rpm

But once I've upgraded rpm if I do a 'yum upgrade yum* rpm* python*' I only get noarch packages.

Comment 5 James Laska 2009-08-19 11:55:25 UTC
Thanks for the feedback Peter!  It appears this isn't just a quick fix for the Alpha and this will require further review as it could potentially impact other components.

Jesse, should this issue remain in MODIFIED and a new bug filed against yum?

Comment 6 Peter Robinson 2009-08-19 12:01:20 UTC
Thanks for the update James. Its a pity it wasn't picked up earlier. Let me know if you need anything further from my end, need me to file a bug for yum etc.

Comment 7 Peter Robinson 2009-08-19 12:07:16 UTC
Actually doing a grep through the yum git repo its basically the same change as was done for rpm:


arches = {
    # ia32
    "athlon": "i686",
    "i686": "i586",
    "geode": "i586",
    "i586": "i486",
    "i486": "i386",
    "i386": "noarch",

Comment 8 Jesse Keating 2009-08-19 18:00:51 UTC
This bug, the one against RPM, should be closed rawhide.  A new bug needs to be opened against yum, and any other packaging tools that may have their own copies of this information.
