Hello I have an package, with I know only work on x86.

You need to file a bug if you do that, and make it block the 'Extras
ExcludeArch PPC' bug.
If if it really "only works on x86", shouldn't it be "ExclusiveArch" to
that and not just "ExcludeArch PPC"?

Paul.

So long Fedora only support PPC and x86 I think it doesn't matter.
Are there plains to support more systems?

Some people rebuild Extras packages for other distributions/hardware. For instance, there is Aurora Linux for sparc, which is based on Fedora. There are probably people doing the same for Itanium.

When somebody with an PPC system an the hardware for the cyberjack
package can tell me that the kernel contains the module then I can
remove the entry. But until the question is resolved I think it is
cleaner do "disable" the build on ppc.

Can't you just download a ppc kernel rpm and use "rpm -qlp kernel-xxx.ppc.rpm" to see if the module is included?

Paul.
