Please share some wisdom from the list... :-)

Realistically there is some type of difference between an rpm made for an
arch (like i386 or x86_64 etc) vrs an rpm with noarch

I was just looking at and downloaded these two from dag


they are the latest and are not assigned to an architecture

there are older rpms of the same that are assigned an arch like i386

what concerns should I be aware of if any when considering installing these?

Or should I just choose an older one with i386 etc architecture in mind?

Unit to install on is production internet mail and web server etc

Thanks and kind regards!
