but CentOS and SL are not the same as RHEL even if they tell you 
so :-)

_some_ EPEL maintainers have access to full set of supported 
architectures ... you can always try asking if someone is willing 
to test for you

ideally if you had some simple steps ready, like "run command 
xyz, send me the console output and log from /a/b/c.log, please"

if there's a bug in RH bugzilla for your issue, you can try 
putting me in QA contact (or on CC) and describe what do you need 
to test in the comment
