Need to change architecture to install libgcc1

Reported by: Lewis Rosenthal Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: rpm Version:
Severity: Keywords:


libgcc1 is only available under the experimental repository in the pentium4 directory. It is a dependency for some other updated packages.


[c:\]python -c 'import yum, pprint; yb = yum.YumBase(); pprint.pprint(yb.conf.yumvar, width=1)'

on my ThinkPad? T43, I get:

{'arch': 'i386',
 'basearch': 'i386',
 'releasever': '00',
 'uuid': '33be946f-3eac-4502-a6e7-7d86c5223c7c'}

which isn't going to get me down to the pentium4 directory, so:

yum info libgcc1

yields no results.

I had no platform file in /etc/rpm. Creating that with:


got me the proper arch, and allowed me (with exactarch=0 in yum.conf, at least) to reach packages in the pentium4 directory.

I suggest adding an i386 package (and perhaps others) to change architectures by adding the proper platform file (at least). I am unsure of what architecture changes should be possible.
