newbie and ppa rejected .



First of all, i'm a complete newbie to GNU/Linux packages but anyway, i
would like to push my latest game Marball Odyssey (
http://sundaycoders.host-ed.net/games.html) whch is currently uses
InstallJammer to the Ubuntu Software center.

For this, i would like to release a binary *only* package which contains 2
files: (executable + resource.data)

I've got my 2 files into a directory Marball-1.3
then created stuff into ./debian dir using : dh_make --single --native
--email sundayozzy@xxxxxxxxx* *
removing stuff *.ex and *.EX
then modified changelog, control and  install (quite mystic for me this one,
i put both files into /usr/bin/ )
and finally i've used the dput command to send the package to the PPA but i
get this error:

Cannot build any of the architectures requested: x86

marball (1.3) maverick; urgency=low

 * Initial Release.


I'm pretty sure it's bcoz of the binary nature of my package but it doesn't
speak that much to me :-/
If any one can help of this it would be very nice!
