Regular expression help needed

I need to construct a regex for Apache's RedirectMatch. I need the following:


RedirectMatch /somepath/to/some/directory/(.*)\.*rpm$ http://www.somedomain.com/$1/mydirectory/$2.rpm

Where the first * should redirect to a certain directory with the same name and the second * should be whole file:

Example:

~/directory/myfile.i386.rpm should go to http://myotherdomain/directory/i386/myfile.i386.rpm

or

~/directory/myfile.i686.rpm should go to http://myotherdomain/directory/i686/myfile.i686.rpm

What's the correct syntax?

I've not tried this on a web server, but it seems to me that you'd want to do:

RedirectMatch /path/to/directory/(.*)\.(.*)\.rpm http://www.domain.com/directory/$2/$1.$2.rpm
