#1 64bit version


I want to use Bleeding Edge on my 64-bit Ubuntu. So Please design a 64-bit version of Bleeding Edge.

    Right now none of my machines runs 64 bit because of a need to run Cisco PacketTracer which is available in 32 bit only. There is a request into the developers to compile it for 64 bit though.

    I would love to create a 64 bit version of BleedingEdge, over Christmas. This will involve repurposing a machine.

    In the mean time, open BleedingEdge with Gedit. It is a shell script. The code is very linear, and nothing is compiled. You may be able to get most of this working for 64 bit in a night (some of it may already work). If you have any questions, drop me a line.

    thanks for your answer. As I find some free time I'll give it a try. Thanks for your offer to ask you, too.

    PS @PacketTrace: Perhaps it might help you: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=881641

    I installed Ubuntu Maverick 64 this weekend and proceeded to update BleedingEdge. Every item on the list was tested. Many modifications were made. Some Items which used to be bleeding edge, such as WICD are now in Ubuntu's repositories and were removed. Some, like FreeNX, don't offer a Maverick package in their PPA.

    Cinelerra does not yet install on 64.
    Libre Office installs, but is in beta. It can be run from /opt/libreoffice/program/soffice

    Overall, it was a good exercise. Give it a try. Let me know what you think.
