I'm about to install VL64 to a usb stick.  Any forewarnings, anyone?

-------

Answering my own question, VL64 isn't set up yet to use unetbootin to install on a usb stick.  So back to the CD method i go.

I had  to rename isolinux/init.lz to isolinux/init.gz and it worked here. I think unetbootin is too strict in this case.

rbistolfi, How did you do this?
Just copy the contents to a FAT32 partition on the USB drive, rename the file and run bootinst.sh?

I used unetbootin to create the bootable USB, and then renamed the file in the USB drive

Good day! Is it pure 64? Can I run 32-bit applications (which required 32-bit libraries, such as ia32-libs) ?

@Gans: Yes, it comes as pure 64, but you can add 32 bit libraries to it.

Thx  :). And what is the best way to do it?

Looks like the required libraries are not available in our repos.. :(
There is a guide here: http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=slackware:multilib#adding_32-bit_slackware_libraries

I will do a test on my system and see how that goes.

Could we get a delta from RC2 to FINAL? Or is it to big to be worthwhile?

32-bit libraries: ow, this is messy. I'm gonna backtrack on this one. I can be done, but not sure I'd want to do it. Sorry!  :-\
