Did you had the same ARCH issue with yum on the rootfs you made.
I have the below issue on both my newly installed RPI and on the first Qemu system:

--- cut ---
[root@localhost ~]# yum -y install rsyslog
RedSleeve-8 - AppStream                                                                                                                                                                                      1.8 MB/s | 5.2 MB     00:02
RedSleeve-8 - BaseOS                                                                                                                                                                                         1.0 MB/s | 2.4 MB     00:02
RedSleeve-8 - RedSleeve                                                                                                                                                                                       23 kB/s |  42 kB     00:01

 Problem: conflicting requests
  - package rsyslog-8.37.0-9.el8.armv5tel does not have a compatible architecture
  - nothing provides libestr.so.0 needed by rsyslog-8.37.0-9.el8.armv5tel
  - nothing provides libfastjson.so.4 needed by rsyslog-8.37.0-9.el8.armv5tel
  - nothing provides libestr >= 0.1.9 needed by rsyslog-8.37.0-9.el8.armv5tel
  - nothing provides logrotate >= 3.5.2 needed by rsyslog-8.37.0-9.el8.armv5tel
(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)
[root@localhost ~]#
--- cut ---

if I manually add

arch=armv5tel to [main] in /etc/yum.conf everything works.

Could your rootfs miss some packages? I can try creating a rootfs from the @core group from the RH8 DVD and crosscheck with your rootfs.

Hi Bjarne,

Yes I had the same issue, with the same solution.

I had the impression that the error is "normal". I do indeed try to install armv5 packages on an armv7 machine. I guess that the "right" solution is, to tell the system that those are compatible architectures. I don't recall where that can be set.

I remember similar issues on arm8 machines. There the solution was to set "armv5tel-redhat-linux-gnu" in /etc/rpm/platform.

I expect tp package one of these solutions in a final version of one of the packages. Maybe as part of debranding dnf. Or maybe as part of redsleeve-release.
