Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 806957
noarch packages marked as arch specific
Last modified: 2014-11-09 17:55:55 EST
Description of problem:
noarch packages are being marked as arch specific for no reason.
For example, the postgresql jdbc driver is .x86_64 in the sam-1-rhel-6
repo when it should be .noarch
postgresql-jdbc.x86_64 8.4.701-3.el6 sam-1-rhel-6
postgresql-jdbc.noarch 8.4.703-0.1.ep6.el6 jb-eap-6-rhel-6
This is not really a SAM bug; more of a philosophical issue to take up with the postgres guys and their builds. Here's a sample build for an example of the arch-specific RPMs we normally get.
