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  Smiley. And what is the best way to do it?

Looks like the required libraries are not available in our repos.. Sad
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!  Undecided
