Bug#425905: nscd: should it depend on libc6-amd64 ?
I have K7 CPU. Lots of other my hosts have i686.
Why upgrade to nscd 2.5-8 should bring libc6-amd64 with itself ?
Are there really any benefits from this, even on x86_64 CPUs ?
What is so performance-critical in nscd that wins from
64bit-optimized code ?
Thank you in advance for your reactions.
Hope to see this dependency removed or downgraded to
