Could at least a simple .tar.bz2 be made available? There's a goddamn lot of linux beyond .deb based distros. -- 10:37, 12 April 2010 (PDT)

And thankfully, most of them have working compilers. What are we supposed to do, take one of our Debian binaries and put it in a tarball? I think not! TX 15:51, 12 April 2010 (PDT)

Actually, those binaries will (usually) work just fine on most Linux systems. Thankfully, "alien" translates package formats. ("alien" is available as source and is a part of virtually ALL Linux distros)

It WOULD be handy for other distro users to have a browsable link to the apt packages...

Lenny support?

Hey! What happened to the Debian Lenny Apt Source? I recently tried to update the game and it said that the source is no longer available. Upon checking the apt sources wiki I see that Lenny is no longer one of the sources listed.

Lenny was superseded by Squeeze in February and is no longer the current stable Debian release. Sorry! You should upgrade. :) TX 20:16, 7 April 2011 (PDT)
