Slackware -current 32 bit... weird 64bit package...


I've just mirrored the slackware repo, and I was wondering what this package is doing in the 32bit version:

slackware/xap/xgames-0.3-x86_64-3.txz

Isn't it a problem ?

I don't need the xgames myself, it's just something I noticed.

It's more of one of those nostalgia packages that persist in Slackware... I'm surprised you aren't complaining about the y/ series which is all console based BSD games. BTW, if you don't install a custom dictionary, you actually need hangman as it's the only package in Slackware that installs one to /usr/dict/ ;P

Maybe I was not clear .

I mean what a 64bit package does in the 32bit tree ?

(I don't complain, or mind about games...)

edit: btw, I didn't get a chance to try to upgrade it, I just unchecked it from my upgrade list in slackpkg, so I can honnestly not tell if it causes any trouble. I just saw the x86_64 in the name that jumped into my eyes.

From Slackware -current Changelog.txt
Quote:
Sun Mar 20 20:27:34 UTC 2011
xap/mozilla-firefox-4.0rc2-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.
xap/xgames-0.3-i486-4.txz: Rebuilt.
+--------------------------+
So looks like maybe a slip up in the original package naming as the software included was for 32 bit systems.
