2010 !?!

There are 32-bit builds of the current releases of GlusterFS for a 
several Linux distributions including Fedora, Ubuntu, and SuSE.

None of them are "official" in any sense of the word. The ones we do 
provide we do as a convenience for the Gluster Community.

And as Niels pointed out, we use the CBS to build packages for the 
CentOS Storage SIG. We get i686 packages for Fedora, Ubuntu and SuSE 
precisely because Bodhi, Launchpad, and OBS do produce i686 builds; CBS 
does not.

If you're using one of the CentOS AltArch releases (aarch64, armhfp, 
i386, ppc64ls, and ppc64) then you're going to have to build your own 
packages. It should be fairly trivial to take the srpm from the Storage 
SIG repos and use rpmbuild to build it on your i686 system. E.g.:

% rpm -i glusterfs-3.10.1.src.rpm
% cd ~/rpmbuild && rpmbuild -ba SPECS/glusterfs.rpm

HTH. Regards,
