No, this is the best temporary solution, until we have a engine for
x86_64 that can ship with fedora.

We really should update at least the other archs, as they currently ship
with a 1.4beta3 version which has some really nasty bugs that are fixed
in 1.4 final. So staying at 1.4beta3 and pushing 1.4 final only into
devel like Ville suggested is a bad idea for the majority of people.

In my opinion Aurelien should release the final packages for all
possible architectures and stay at version 1.4beta3 in x86_64 until a
solution is found for the missing sound engine. When there is one, we
can release a new package for all archs including this solution. Doing
so, we improve stability for the majority of users a lot and we do not
lessen stability for x86_64 users.



Cheers,

Jens
