Comment 2 Axel Thimm 2006-10-16 06:09:23 EDT
Thanks, the patch looks OK from a Fedora POV. I've added Panu, the apt
maintainer, to the Cc. Panu, what do you think? Is the patch acceptable, should
I add it to the package?

As a workaround (for people reading this before it gets fixed) you can replace
the arch variables and hardwire "ppc" in the sources.list.
Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2006-10-16 16:32:49 EDT
The archtable is a mess - stuff collected over time from Debian, Suse and who
knows what distros. If it fixes things for Fedora, go ahead and add to the FE

For upstream purposes, I need to do some studying on what various distros expect
it to be (wrt ppc especially since that's an unknown beast to me) and whether it
could sanely be moved to being runtime detectable (or at least configurable) thingy.

Any word on this? Looks like the patch should just go in.
Comment 5 Axel Thimm 2006-11-23 12:21:56 EST
Does the latest package, 0.5.15lorg3.2-8, (still in the needsign queue, but
should be available in the next hours) fix this?

Yes! Works perfectly on FC6. Thanks.
