Re: Experience with x86_64-only (no i386) in F10?


I have this experience: I installed using a live F8 xfce spin cd and yum erased all 386/586/686 RPMs as you suggest. Thus, all my rpms are either x86_64 or noarch. Btw, I may be wrong on this, but I thought the F10 xfce spin cd (x86_64) did not have any ?86 RPMS. 

The only functionality I am missing is the flash: I was unaware of the 64-bt alpha adobe plugin. I have never quite understood why gnash does not work for me (even where it works, I don't get sound), but I haven't bothered a whole lot with it.

So, go ahead and try it out and see how things go for you.
