Fedora 11 x86_64, Installing nerolinux-3.5.2.3-x86_64.rpm

Fedora 11 x86_64 has (apparently) removed support for the “amd64” arch tag on RPM files, opting instead for only the official “x86_64” tag.

This means that to install the nerolinux 64-bit rpm file, the –ignorearch option must be issued to the rpm command-line utility, as follows:

#rpm --ignorearch -ivh nerolinux-3.5.2.3-x86_64.rpm

That should allow this particular rpm to be installed successfully.
