Default 2 recommendations needed for installing ArchLinux

Arch is using a different repository for 32-bit software under 64-bit machines called 'multilib'. You only need to enable that and you will be fine.

Thank you

so there are no issues with e.g. the no-cost proprietary lightscribe apps using 64-bit Arch Linux?! I don't need 32-bit support especially for my DAW, since I'm not using Windows VSTs. OTOH I never was lucky that I wasn't able to get the proprietary KORG nano KONTROL app run under wine. Tried this for 64-bit installs only.

Regards,

Ralf

PS: Reading the Internet recovering removed files from ext3 seems to be less problematic, than doing this from ext4. So I perhaps will install Arch to ext3 and join another list to restore my lost data.

Pardon, that email thingy from my provider is a PITA. I'll use a Linux MUA ASAP.
