Description gthornock 2002-09-23 20:20:16 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

Yes, "pentium3" is not known to rpm. You're
probably looking for --target i686.

Comment 2 gthornock 2002-09-24 14:16:09 UTC
That's fine, but if that's the case, then why does rpmbuild accept --target
