ih all, Quentin expecially, i've tried to install the 64studio 386 install disc with un-bootable results. Iv'e seen the other forums on this issue... I've installes xubuntu on my box and was wondering wehether or not i could hook into the 64 studio repos using apt to get 64Studio running on my system. I thought if i could add it to the list of repos, i could update the system to a bootable multimedia kernel that way. what's the best way forward? I imagine i can get the same system running - am i wrong? cheerz-4-now dav=-0

I guess i can wait to reinstall the 32-bit version of 64Studio. I can always use windows to check up on certain sites that reqire a fully functional Flashplayer-9. It's been said elsewhere that 2.1 will feature a kernel that boots without these issues... I'm going to re-partition my drive with a seperate /home directory in the future methinks. until then, i'm more than happy with LADSPA plugins. oh by the way- Any known issues with dualbooting a 64 and 32 bit os using the same /home partition? just checking :-) good weekend all- dav=-0

Installed 32 bit testing again on a spare disk last night. Same result no "fst" which is not an issue here as I don't use vst. As far as I can tell everything else seems fine. dave

It is very rare the 32 bit version install has issues, once installed it just works!. I can't recall "having" to re-install unless I wanted to. I download the test releases and now and again the testing/testing release and install because I choose to. I multiboot 64studio, ubuntustudio, and jacklab and use mepis as my rescue/partition tool. 64studio has never given me any major issues unless I cause them!!! by trying to upgrade beyond etch. All my files are kept on a separate partition so a re-install is not a major event, in fact I love re-installing and setting up linux. Graphics = nvidia FX 5200 : Sound = dmx6fire. Great news that you are back on 64studio, pleased for you :-) dave.

Well, i'm back/ and running 64Studio/64bit again. I trued xubuntu, ubuntu, ubuntu studio, and even had a go at installing Beryl/compiz. I don't have the greatest video card (Nvidia-GforceFX) so Beryl.( which i couldn't switch off! ) is a bit too fat. i've apt-got all my usual programs and updated to Ardour 2.4 now - i LOVE the faders and little meters on the main edit window. I'll just stick with my fave distro now - 'till the 64/32 issues stop being a problem, or until the 2.1 install DVD allows me to boot the kernel in 32 bit . I LOVE this distro, and the onyl problem for me has been Flash player (?) and other 'regular user' issues. Sites on the net that require the newest Flashplayer, such as Myspacemusic were appearing with just a grey square where the player ought to be. A trifling issue compared to my need for high-end audio, but i DO use these flash driven sites a lot... AND, i'm going to want to enable usage of VST plugins etc... until then, YAY! i'm back. dav=-0

Hi all, I have been using 64studio-i386 since DeMuDi finished. The stable release installed smoothly and is still my stable desktop, however I had issues installing the latest 2.1rc1 release. At the software install section 'fst' stopped the install and gave errors, I carried on regardless only to be met by a grub install error, again I carried on and was quickly informed that grub had in fact installed. The install finished and booted into my favourite distro. I removed fst here. In the past I have installed the [64studio_master_i386.iso] (many times) and up to now have found it to be very stable. This might be a good method if you are having install problems and want the testing/testing version of 64studio-i386. One version of 64studio I have is "SimplyMEPIS" (etch) based, I followed the FAQ on installing from a debian base and ended up with a nice kde desktop, 64studio kernel and software, it is rock solid, Mepis is my kde desktop choice. Soon I will be getting a 64 bit dual core computer and as soon as it is built it will be dedicated to 64studio. Thanks 64studio for a great distro. keep trying Gutsy-gibbon the learning is all good, and you are going to enjoy 64studio. dave

Ubuntu and Debian may be related, but they don't mix... You could try installing debian etch, and upgrading that, but even that is not so easy. I see that the Disk poll has swung in favour of a live DVD with install option. Perhaps this would solve some of the issues, but it will take a lot of extra work from Free, and it will not be ready soon. Cheers,
