I'm a bit confused concerning the newer bootstrap packages. In the repo directories, I see


I've always been a bit confused regarding the proper arch for OS/2. Do I take the above literally, that if I actually have a Pentium 4 system I should use the p4 wpi and if I have something newer, I should use the i386 wpi?

IAC, we should update the wiki to reflect the newer builds. I'm happy to do that, but I just need some guidance.

i386 is the most compatible boostrap, it matches all processors around.
p4 matches only pentium4 and newer cpu.

so I suggest the p4 as default bootstrap package for a recent PC.

Version 22 addresses updated bootstrap builds and architecture references. Also, this version points to creation/editing of /etc/rpm/platform as discussed in Platform Selection for Binaries (that page also updated to add link to rpm list discussion of platform file).
