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

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!  :-\
It is not so terrible. I will use pure 64) Thanks for the help  :)

What TV tuner cards (if any) does this new operating system support?

It depends on the cards. Check the manufactures sites for that.

I've *just* fully installed the VL 7.0 complete with pictures, videos etc and I'm willing to start over again if the 64bit version is a definite advantage to me.  Is the package selection as good as for the 32 bit versions?  Most importantly, I would like to get access to 32 bit programmes.  I thought I read there were none on the repos yet.....but if they are, are the lib32's automatically installed as dependencies?  I need life to be simple now.  I do like what I have currently.

I have a very early dual core amd with 936 megs of ram.  Thanks.

There are no 32 bit libraries installed.

You would need to install them this would be
how to do that:

http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/wine/pkg64/13.37/wine-1.5.5-x86_64-1alien.tgz

There are not as many 64 bit apps as there are 32 bit apps.

grep DVB /boot/config* will get you a list of drivers

That information is interesting, and useful to a point, but I was asking about tuner cards, not tuner card drivers.

You asked which cards would work. No card will work without a driver, therefore you wanted to know about drivers, whether you knew it or not.

Thanks. Now, what happened to acroreader? It is listed in "vl-Quik picks in the "Office" menu), but it doesn't install when I select it.
