The spec file for katello-agent says that it depends on the following:
Requires: gofer >= 2.5
Requires: python-gofer-proton >= 2.5
Requires: python-pulp-agent-lib >= 2.6
Requires: pulp-rpm-handlers >= 2.6
It looks like all of the above packages are noarch. So theoretically you should still be able to use them on i386. Is my understanding correct here?
