RPMS for Athlon


Hi all,

I've just downloaded an RPM for my graphics card:

powervr-2.00.20-516.rh90.athlon.rpm

(this is in advance of obtaining Red Hat 9 (my first venture into Linux).

Seeing the suffix, does this mean that rpms which end .i386.rpm are not going to be compatible with my athlon powered machine?

Thanks in advance

i386 should work, so should i586 & i686.
