Description of problem:
rpmbuild accepts "--target pentium3" as a compile option, and gcc 3.2 knows what
to do to compile for pentium3. However, the current version of rpm won't
install *.pentium3.rpm, it gives an error message indicating that the rpm is
intended for a pentium3 architecture. (Which, in fact, it is, but rpm doesn't
seem to realize what a pentium3 is.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Grab a random .src.rpm file
2. rpmbuild --rebuild --target pentium3 *.src.rpm
3. rpm -Uvh *.pentium3.rpm
Actual Results: There's an error message indicating that the rpm file is for a
pentium3 architecture. (It is, and the computer I'm using is, in fact, a
Pentium 3.) The rpm is not installed.
Expected Results: I expected the rpm to install and function correctly.
Yes, "pentium3" is not known to rpm. You're
probably looking for --target i686.
That's fine, but if that's the case, then why does rpmbuild accept --target
