Re: How does RPM know what architecture we're on?





      We recently moved an FC3 system from a box running an i586 processor
to one running an i686.  We then upgraded the kernel, glibc and ssl stuff
to the i686 versions.  We had to use the --ignorearch flag to get it done.
Now, even when we upgrade any of those packages, yum wants to install the
i386 versions, and rpm says:
        package glibc-2.3.5-0.fc3.1 is intended for a i686 architecture
        package nptl-devel-2.3.5-0.fc3.1 is intended for a i686 architecture


How about /etc/rpm/platform  ?

(I had a similar issue on a recent install, and I think that changing the contents of this config file solved it.  Sorry if the name's goofed - checking mail on a relative's Windows box today.)
