I had centos6.2 64 bit in for a couple days, but very little worked without
pie-ratting 32 bit libraries into the /usr/lib tree, even if there was an
identical 64 bitter in /usr/lib64.
Far too much of the stuff I'd like to run only comes in 32 bit, and I
wasn't able to figure out how to get yumex (I'd also forgotten how big a
POC that was) to show me the 32 bit stuff. So it was a 500% scrooem
situation, at my age I don't have time for centos to grow some 64 bit
cajons, so yesterday morning I rebooted to a 32 bit ubuntu-10.04+linuxcnc
install, the same as at least 2 of my other machines is running here, maybe
3 as I think that is the version installed on my lappy too.
So yes, its a 32 bit install, 64 bit simply is not yet ready for Aunt
Tillies desktop (or mine by inference), and at the rate, and attitudes
prevailing on the centos list, I doubt if it will ever be. I asked 2 times
about the opencascade kit, which the majority of decent cad/cam for linux
software uses for rendering, and was ignored both times. The ubuntu repos
have it properly sorted, 3 clicks to install the lot. Whats not to like?
Anyway, that doesn't make the amd microcode load.
