I built a bunch more i686 items into c7.00.04 on buildlogs.centos.org
... also, whenever I build any SRPM, I am building both i386 and
x86_64.  So all the SRPMs have tried to be built on i386 at this point.

So, if someone wants to figure out all the RPMs that are produced, the
ones that have "i686 is not a supported arch" ... but are actually
required (for example syslinux is going to need to be modified to build
on i686 ... the newer kernels are going to need to be modified like the
i686 that is here:


I also know that java-1.6.0-openjdk has not built and it is not in
fedora 18 or fedora 19.  Do we have to have it or can we use
java01.7.0-openjdk for all the java things for i386.

I also use i386 and i686 interchangeably ... the mock configs are links
of each other, so they produce the same packages in the same way, etc.

So the way I see it, our goals right now are to look at the x86_64
packages that are in the 7.0.1406 directory. look at all the i686
packages that are built in c7.00.02 through c7.00.04 for i686 and see if
there is anything we need to produce the distro that we don't have.  If
there are, I should have already tried to build them in c7.00.04.  Lets
develop a list of things we need that we do not have .. and lets verify
we really need it.

NOTE:  any machine that is going to run any i686 CentOS-7 needs CPU PAE
support, meaning it has to run at least CentOS-6 right now.

What I know we need right now:

1.  Need a syslinux that works
2.  Need an SRPM that builds the GA kernel on i686.
3.  Figure out anything that is critical that is not already built.

What else do we need?
