Description erikj 2003-06-23 11:48:00 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79C-SGI [en] (X11; I; IRIX 6.5 IP32)

Description of problem:
This bug is similar to a very old bug - #31485
However, I noticed in RedHat 9 systems that are ia32 based, uname -p will
report things like 'i686' instead of 'unknown'.

On Itanium1 and Itanium2 systems I've used (including SGI 750, HP RX2600, and
SGI's Altix product), uname -p reports unknown with AS 2.1.

This isn't a huge deal but  we ran across this and I thought I'd file a bug on

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to AS 2.1 ia64 system
2. run 'uname -p'

Actual Results:  It reports 'unknown'

Expected Results:  Something like 'itanium1' or similar.

Additional info:

Yes.  sh-utils became coreutils, and that displays 'ia64' from uname -p.  So
it's 'fixed' (in as much as, you get the output you expect) in a newer version.
