Earlier this year on this list several of us were discussing the

of the Fedora Core packages.  One of the suggestions thrown around that
had zero opposition was changing the base architecture from i386 to
i486.  Why has this not been done?  This is especially poignant since
Fedora Core 1 finally broke i386 compatibility with its kernel.

Lots of pain for little gain (especially if we're just moving to i486 as the base arch).

What kind of pain are we talking about here?


Peace,
