Hi Daniel, Peter, list

I am wondering how we can teach imgcreator about our ARM arch, so that
it can build an image with some arm5tel packages and some armv7l
packages (such as the kernel).

Today I discovered that rpm itself is complaining about installing a
kernel armv7l package -- in a lousy hack in a preimage script,
probably because uname reports that the (build)host is arm5tel. We'll
probably have to teach rpm about this as well.

Do you know where and how rpm, yum and imgcreator keep track of arches
and subarches?
