    Description

      As can be seen in:

      http://apt.puppetlabs.com/dists/wheezy/main/binary-armhf/Packages

      facter is again depending on dmidecode on all architectures, instead of just x86 and ia64 where it actually makes sense. This is actually the same issue reocurring:

      https://projects.puppetlabs.com/issues/19678

      This makes puppet uninstallable on a raspberrypi. The solution is to do the dmidecode requirement conditional on architecture. This pull request was used to fix this but apparently only on facter 1.7, which isn't out yet?
