x86_64 kernel + i586 F11 userspace + yum



Hi,

I run the above system, and everything works fine (except perhaps for SELinux[1]). I have created a /etc/rpm/platform containing 'i586-redhat-linux'.

Well, everything works except for one thing: yum. Installing with 'yum install name' no longer works, I must now instead explicitly specify the arch, e.g. 'yum install name.i58'.

Does anyone know a fix for this?

Also, if I explicitely add the x86-64 updates repo, and only include the 'kernel' package from it, should I be able to expect that yum update will Do The Right Thing, or will I need to manually 'yum install kernel.x86_64' whenever kernels are updated (or worse)?

Thanks.

1. Least, I presume this is SELinux related:

SELinux: initialized (dev binfmt_misc, type binfmt_misc), uses genfs_contexts ioctl32(mount:1503): Unknown cmd fd(3) cmd(80041272){t:12;sz:4} arg(ffb0eb68) on /home/xguest ioctl32(mount:1503): Unknown cmd fd(3) cmd(00001260){t:12;sz:0} arg(ffb0eb70) on /home/xguest ioctl32(mount:1503): Unknown cmd fd(3) cmd(801c0204){t:02;sz:28} arg(ffb0eb4c) on /home/xguest
