installing mariadb using rpm


hello -

i was following an earlier thread titled:

[Maria-discuss] Install MariaDB repo official Centos-7
this is the first time i have attempted an RPM install.  so i decided to
try it myself, using 10.2 on a new Centos7 installation created in

the installation went perfectly, but now i have a question.

i let mariadb generate my repo using this link:


and the following repo was generated:

# MariaDB 10.2 CentOS repository list - created 2017-11-28 17:28 UTC #
http://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/repositories/ [mariadb] name = MariaDB
baseurl = http://yum.mariadb.org/10.2/centos7-amd64 gpgkey=
https://yum.mariadb.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-MariaDB gpgcheck=1

my question:  when i cat /proc/cpuinfo, i see the following:

vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
model name      : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU @ 2.30GHz

 and yet the repo specifies "centos7-amd64".

does it matter that amd64 is being specified rather than Intel?

Thank you,

Mark Edwards
