Package manager concerns...Particular to Studio-13.37
I got the flashdrive to install to my harddrive.
(see question below all this)
I'm using sda3 as /
and sda4 as /root/local.
sda1 is win8 (free pre-release trial (runs out by feb 2013)}
The normal user is away 2 weeks at (even) a time, (2 weeks on tw0 weeks off.)
This one of my systems (#2), that I have built from leftover parts from the last years upgrade disasters, 3 of.
It's a 6 core AMD @3.2G on a Ga-990fxa-ud3 (rev 1.1) with 8 gigs of 2133 patriot ram (runs at 1600, currently. lol!) and a terrabyte of WD Black sata drive. It's pretty comparable to my #1 system. main diff... amd fx8150 with 16gb of corsair vengence 1600MHz. and the graphics cards are similar, #2 has a gtx560-1Gb and #1 has a gfx570-1388Mb.
Both systems are a pleasure to use.
Nearly all of my GNU/Linux experience comes from Learning with Mandriva (thanks heaps), so some things are strange and some are familiar.
Package manager issue,
I see lots of files called i486, i686.
I'm trying to run a 64bit system.
Is there any disadvantage to the core of the Studio-13.37 if I install any of those packages? Sometimes Hydrogen won't start after installing some files, like (gnu)office,mesa, can't find GLEW!
Should I load "any" other (read: outside "Studio-13.37)Package (sfs/pet), or just be content with a shithot recorder/mixer? I'm happy, really happy.
edit, less is better, I loaded the mesa-dev, mesa and installed the themes and all is good(?).
