Well, let me dig into my e-mails (on Monday). I was writing based on my
I recall I was working on that issue in January in preparation of AC1
release, but was
not able to test it on real ev6 machine. It seemed that everything was
ready in rpm source
code and during debugging I fooled CPU detection code that I had ev6
machine and ev6 package
installed without problems. I could take a look the issue again if I had
access to ev6 class machine
(Mike? :) ).
