Hi flip city;

I've build 8.2 for both 32bit and 64bit and move them into testing.  Could you let me know how it works on 64bit for you. Tests ok on 32bit here.

I built it against xfce4-4.8.0 not xfce4-4.10.  So probably best to stick with default xfce4-4.8.0 if you want to use the weather plugin.


notes: When I tested on 32bit I had no data for a number of minutes and then it just came around.  Must update on a pretty slow cycle.
Another quirk was it tested fine on my actual machine but I could never get it to give me any readings in VirtualBox testing.
Hoping you can give me some feedback. Specially for 64bit.

 It will be a bit...about a week, so stand by.
Thanks for the help old buddy. Really digging VLocity. Verry snappy response and a very good selection of preinstalled packages. Really not much to add for a very nice system.
just some old stand bys I through in for kicks.

 Hollar at ya soon

Works fine for me on Vlocity 64bit. Seems to update fairly quickly for me, and I'm in the sticks. Information must be coming from a close source too because it normally has matched my outdoor sensor thermometer within 2 degrees or less. Been using it 3-4days now, thanks for the plugin.
