64 bit packages for VL
« on: October 04, 2007, 04:54:56 pm »
anyone building these? where are they? I read through all the rants n raves about VL getting a 64bit release out, and so uelsk8s tossed one out,  I don't seem to be able to find anything as far as packages for this. so I'm requesting some packages for 64bit version of VL... at least as many applications as we have in the 32bit (common sense about some that aren't made for 64bit).

I'd be happy to if I knew that there is a surefire way to cross-compile. I only have  32 bit machines, with no hope of getting a 64 bit until my kids are moved out of the house 18 or 20 years from now.  :D

I still want to build packages for it, but my 64 bit box and it's manufacturer (ASUS) have let me down time after time, so at this point I am unsure if I will own a 64 bit box any time in the near future :-\.
Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.
