RPM: Switching from i686 to Pentium4

Hi

Here it is what I wrote: "RPM: Switching from i686 to Pentium4"
Please notice it is experimental and it is not "one size fits all".

I also slip this topic from the other thread, even if it was related it took a different path.

Regards

I don't remember the rest of this thread. But wouldn't it suffice to just update os2-base? That changes the platform.

Martin Iturbide:
Hi. The issue that I found is that there are some packages that can not be changed from i686 to pentium4 without a reinstall. If I remember correctly you can't upgrade the rpm package to pentium4, an error shows up.

Regards.

Yes it does. And afterwards all new packages get updated to the right arch. Updating all is not needed as it gains nothing. Iirc this was discussed already several Times.
