Bibutils and 64-bit Linux

  • Contrafibularity

    My installation of refbase is hosted on a (shared) web server which runs on 64-bit Linux. This is supported by the latest version of bibutils (, but the older version recommended for refbase ( does not include x86_64 binaries.

    Does that mean that in this case, building directly from source is currently the only way of installing bibutils?

    That's certainly not a bad way.  Many linux distributions maintain 64-bit versions of bibutils.  You may be able to get your system administrator to install it from a package manager or download the executables and extract them yourself.  If your system has the needed 32-bit libraries installed, you can also just use the 32-bit version of bibutils.
