ok, so looking at this some more.
A sample from that output:
arch_compat: alphaev67: alphaev6
arch_compat: alphaev6: alphapca56
arch_compat: alphapca56: alphaev56
arch_compat: alphaev56: alphaev5
arch_compat: alphaev5: alpha
arch_compat: alpha: axp noarch
arch_compat: athlon: i686
arch_compat: i686: i586
arch_compat: i586: i486
arch_compat: i486: i386
arch_compat: i386: noarch
Now is it reasonable to read that as:
alphaev67 compat w/ alphaev6
alphaev6 compat w/ alphaca56
and are they therefore transitive?
is alphaev67 compat with alphaev6?
I would say yes based on what the athlon -> i386 say.
And if that's true can I look through this list, grab things where the
line ends in noarch and call those the "base classes" - doing a quick
grep of the one on my system that gets me:
but then there is ppc and ppc64 which appear to not support noarch
packages. Is that an endian issue?
