Yeah, you're not going to be installing i386 rpms on a Raspberry Pi,
unless they're just marked as such but contain nothing but
scripts/java or other noarch content.  i386 binaries will not run on
ARM without emulation (which you're not going to want to do on ARM!).

You can probably use tools to extract an rpm into its component files
and manually install them, but it is clunky.  If your Pi wants .deb
files then it probably has a package manager, just not rpm-based.

I feel your pain, I use Gentoo so whatever packages you find online
will almost never work without wrappers of some kind...  :)
