Ouch!!! Another i?86 issue...

Hi all,

while installing VmTools from VI 3.0.1 in an old Linux (RedHat 6.x) distro I get this error messages:

I think that's because the distro cannot understand what kind of processors it's running on (Opteron).
I manage to solve this problem using the –-ignorearch switch for rpm command (see man rpm)
Hope to help
