Please tell this to the package builders, when I reported this it became
a flame war and I was stalked through several forums and called troll. I
was the one who reported the invalid Suse packages, while a lot of
people had broken their audio Suses before, but didn't reported it to
the right people. I'm still using Suse, Suse sometimes has advantages,
but for someone who will install packages with stable audio
applications, I recommend to use another distro.

It's not Suse, but Packman and the package builder ignores any hints or

Again, if you aren't able to compile this stuff yourself, than you
better use another distro. Suse has a special way of mixing x86 and
x86_64 stuff, this has advantages and disadvantages and also they seems
to ignore some rules of package building, but I'm not fine with the
rules for package building.
