finding software for my architecture
hey there, i had a question about what to do about the lack of software for my computer. it's a dual opteron, and when i look for amd64 RPMs or precompiled binaries, it's usually for i386 or other architectures. what can i do about this? is the solution to compile from source? there are a lot of software packages i'd love to be able to use (dosbox), and i dont see amd64 versions.
i dont know how to compile from source yet, but it's only because i haven't done it yet, i'm learning quickly.
so basically, when i see precompiled versions of things i want to use, but no amd64, i should compile my own? or am i way off here? thanks for any info.
