Subject: vdrift: Completely unusable on powerpc
Package: vdrift
Version: 0.0.2006.10.06-1
Severity: important

*** Please type your report below this line ***
It seems that the current version of the package is completely unusable
on powerpc linux. Upstream may have fixed this bug in the new release.
I am not sure, but they say that they had a bug on mac os x and powerpc which 
now fixed in the last release.
Anyway, it is unusable in its current state on powerpc boxes and even
has put my X session in a bad state (i.e. without mouse) because I tried to 
play in
fullscreen. At least a warning for users should be provided.
