I'm running SuSE 9.2 on my dual Opteron and haven't had too many sw
problems. I would encourage anybody doing this to run a 32-bit version
of their browser so that the 32-bit plugins will work (there are few
64-bit plugins available).
I'm running xine and it plays files fine. Is there a particular format
that works in 32-bit mode but not 64-bit mode?
Suse separates libraries into /lib, /lib64, /usr/lib, /usr/lib64. Very
few if any (in my experience - ymmv) source tarballs understand
