Smart Package Manager problems (help please).


Hello everyone =)

Recently I installed smartpm (for kubuntu debian)..which seems to be very nice. I added the mirrors for kde 3.5 and amarok 1.3.7. Well, it seems..that I'm having problems installing programs with smart..because it's (for some reason) downloading AMD64 rpms...when I have an intel processer. How can I keep it from trying to install these 64bit files, and why is it doing this? Does anyone know?

Thanks!

-Joe

Never used smartrpm, but do a systemwide search for these files:
.smartrpmrc
smartrc
smartrpm.conf
...

You get it, no doubt. Make a search for those config files.

Which intel chip are you using. The AMD64 rpm's may actually be X86_64 rpm's which can be used with a 64 bit intel chip.
