new packages pentium4

Hi, after change:

Architecture = auto
in your /etc/pacman.conf and your machine supports sse2 instructions.
This requires reinstallation (and if necessary a downgrade) of all installed packages, e.g. by running

pacman -Syy
pacman -Qqn | pacman -S -

Now if if try to install a package from AUR (for example mpv-git) the message from pacman -U mpv-git.....i686.tar.xz it's not an architecture valid. I had to change manually pacman.conf with i686.
Then restored the pacman.conf, is this behaviour correct or there is a pacman trick to do it? Do i harm system if i change pacman.conf ?

thanks, ciao.

Re: new packages pentium4

the right way is to keep pacman.conf as-is and recompile the AUR package - most probably after adding "pentium4" to the "arch=()" array.
