Re: Multiarch, ia32-libs, Wine, Skype & others

ugh skype :x am i right? it installed 86 dependencies. probably the only i386 app i use. wish microsoft they'd make a native 64bit version, but nooo. or at least everybody who uses it, start using something else as well, that works on more platforms. it sux.

Re: packages.linuxmint.com currently down [SOLVED]

It throws an error because of that line and if i remove it, mintUpdate reports no errors. Once i put it back in, the error is back. I did however miss earlier that synaptic also reports this problem. I tried switching a few mirrors, but it's the same. aptitude from command line works as expected.
