Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-04-26 12:58:50 EDT
i386 packages aren't generally included in the x86_64 extras repos.
Comment 2 Phil Wirtz 2006-04-27 18:07:54 EDT
but you do in core
Comment 3 Phil Wirtz 2006-04-27 18:17:26 EDT
basically I would rather have a package that works even if it is the wrong
specifc arch than an exact arch package that doesn't work. Update when the exact
arch works.
