I am using the meta appliance at this link http://dist.stormfolio.boxgrinder.org/meta/boxgrinder-meta-1.2-fedora-13-i686-vmware.tgz to try and build centos 5 . Keep getting errors when it tries to connect to the centos mirror repository to find a mirror to get to http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=i686&repo=updates. It gets this "Bad arch - not in list - x86_64 alpha s390x ia64 s390 i386" from the mirror. The reason being that it is recognizing the architecture as i686 and centos needs i386. Is there a way to change this?
Thanks, Steve Saksa
I created a bug report for this. There is a workaround described in the bug report. I'll release a fix for that shortly.
P.S. Cross-OS building is not supported at this point because of yum RPM database issues. You may create the appliance, but most probably you'll not be able to install any package manually using yum.
