Puppet server is running 3.3. Clients are all (ARM based) running 2.6. I've tried adding the repository but these are all x86 based. It looks like most of the files are .rb so the CPU type shouldn't be an issue but I'm concerned that there might be compiled bits lurking in there.

How do I go about getting the latest build for my ARM-based systems?

EDIT: Should have said - clients are running Debian 6

I solved this by creating a dummy package for dmidecode. This file isn't available for ARM processors but is a dependency for puppet-common.

Once the dependency is installed puppet will upgrade properly.

You haven't written what OS you are using. If it's Linux, try looking for puppet packages in your distribution's repositories - either official or backports, etc. If they're outdated, try installing puppet using ruby gems.
