Question has vl64bit ever been up on distrowatch's side panel?

Agreed as many people are looking for a 64-bit distro and VL is not known for that yet.

It would be nice to have the kernel headers match so that compiling packages that require the match would work without the extra steps of downloading and installing the headers.

I've not been disappointed with VLocity thus far.
The kernel-headers are not supposed to match.
We don't have enough room to include the kernel source package, or we would.

Thanks for letting me know about the headers.

Sorry all for my earlier posts re RC 2 in another section.

How do i start the default X session on vl64 rc2? When i try i get a message that the system has no Xclients file installed and it falls back to twm. The fluxbox session works fine tho.

Installed VLcity RC2 last week, so far pretty nice, though now I have to slowly mirror the 64 bit repo, since I had only the 32 bit one. Only had a minor glitch after installing, during first run setup where it seemed to be doing/saying nothing until I hit Enter and then it continued (seemingly) normally.

I guess this not supposed to have 32 bit app compatibility, since when trying to run the seamonkey binary from the SeaMonkey Project (or a couple of other apps I tried after that), it says it can't find the very file it is trying to run. Or is this some other issue?

PS: I can't get vlc-2.0.1 built on this using the alien restricted slackbuild setup. Anybody had any luck with vlc-2.0.1?

you can run 32bit apps, but the 32bit libs required to run them are not present. You will need to install all of the 32bit core libs and whatever else the 32bit app you are trying to run needs. You can use the pkgs from the 32bit repo.

Figured that was the way to go, but thought I'd check first, since this is my first 64 bit experience... ;D



EDIT: Ok, so this would create a BIG maintenance problem, since one can't use slapt-get or gslapt to do it, or it would replace the 64 bit libs, as they have the same package basename... right?

Old mobo died, finally got a new one. Sprung for an Ivy Bridge system, because the new integrated video has been getting good reviews.

Running RC2.11 and Linux 3.4.4, system is fast and stable so far. Main shortcoming is that Ivy Bridge needs Mesa 8+ for proper 3D acceleration. Any chance that may be coming our way?

Any thoughts on this? Is this what would happen, or am I way off base here? I really haven't had a chance to check what other distros do.

I think you are right.
If there is a reason you need to run multilib you would have to be careful not to upgradepkg your base lib pkgs.
you would be forced to do it all manually.
