64-bit support
« on: December 07, 2012, 08:16:30 am »
Here's a question, I noticed on the wiki it stated:

"64-bit versions of the LinuxMCE package are no longer under active development after 7.10"

Is there a reason for this, or did they just decide not to? Wouldn't it be a boon?

Yeah... we just said "You know what? This project is just too good... we should cripple it."

Lol... I keed I keed. There are a lot of issues with 64, but we are passively working on them, they are just sort of back burner. Feel free to dig in! There is plenty of code to go around :)

if you want to unleash the power of 64bit, you can use ago control (http://www.agocontrol.com). It provides 64bit packages. Not that 64bits are better than 32 for home automation, but you were asking for it :-)
