As far I know, "armv6" stands for ARMv6 architecture, "h" stands for hard-float (hardware FPU; it is optional for v<7), and "l" probably stands for little-endian (hardware supports both kinds of endianness). Machine code built for one variant can run on some but not all other variants (this includes both hardware and runtime environment). In this sense, "armv6" is not a single architecture but a family of similar but different and often incompatible architectures. I think you should call the architecture "armv6hl" (assuming you want to stick to tools & nomenclature of Fedora et al.) and disregard the existence of other variants, at least for the time being. -- Pavel Kankovsky aka Peak "Que sais-je?"
