Reddit: Why aren't package managers using bittorrent to download packages?

I can't see any downsides except for some retards saying bittorrent is only used for doing illegal things.

Thursday 26th of February 2015 05:16:01 AM

HI everyone im a first time Linux user I have been using mac and windows all my life but am finally using linux to run a particular program. I am currently running Cent OS 6.3 on virtualbox simply to see if I can get it working properly. Once I can I will do the process on an actually hard drive and spend them money to do it properly. I am trying to install a program and I am running into an error I cant seem to find an solution online to. When I try to run the command to install the program it says ERROR: ARCH expected is x86_64.... ARCH detected is : i686. What does this mean and how do I fix it???

Thanks.
