ARCHITECTURE AND OS:
build arch : i86pc
compatible build archs: i86pc
build os : sunos
compatible build os's : sunos
install arch : i86pc
install os : sunos
compatible archs : i86pc
compatible os's : SunOS
uname -ra returns
SunOS build 5.11 snv_98 i86pc i386 i86pc Solaris
Putting i386-pc-solaris2.11 into /etc/rpm/platform allows me to use yum
to install noarch packages.
looks like yum/archwork.py is actually where yum defines compatibility.
I'll have to define an i86pc entry in here (or recompile all of my
already compiled packages)
