kdei not present in ktown for i486


Hi.

I'm seeing that in ktown repository the kdei packages are not present in the i486 repositories.

These packages are presents in the x86_64 repositories.

No problem, they are noarch packages so I can download and install my preferred language from that repo, but slackpkg+ can't found it.

From the README:

Quote:
About the language packs (KDEI) - for Slackware 32-bit as well as 64-bit:
* KDE localizations (language packs) are available in "x86_64/kdei". You only
need one package (for your own language). Don't let the "x86_64" in the
directory name fool you, the language packs are useable on both platforms.
translations/localizations.
I guess this is intended.

Well, Alien BOB would have to upload them twice, or create a separate `ktown-kdei' repository for this. Or is there another solution? I'm also interested in this.

Suggest Alien Bob to edit his script to hard link ../x86_64/kdei/$pkg => ../i486/kdei.

That would cost neither bandwidth for upload nor space on disk.

He can use (as already does) hard links between the two repositories.

edit: @Didier, I wrote before read you

You're right, Didier. Would be nice of Alien BOB if he could do this.
