Thumbs down Adapting to x86_64 on Fedora 10


Hello!

For most of my computing life, I have used old i386 Linux computers.
I just built a new one that's faster than those (obviously) and has a 64-bit fedora 10 installation.

I'm not used to 64 bits, so I need to solve these problems:

1. I can't install flash for firefox, the flash 10 install doesn't support my architecture
2. I can't play SecondLife. It's not 64 bit compatible, but it is if I install the 32-bit compat libs for all the packages. Which I can't find.
3. What on earth is wrong with AssaultCube? It's a nice 1st person shooter, but it can't find the /lib file for a package I installed.(OpenAL) I suspect this has something to do with having 64 bits, since everything else does.***IF YOU KNOW HOW TO INSTALL ASSAULTCUBE FROM A REPO OF SOME KIND THAT WILL AUTOCONFIGURE DEPS AND STUFF WITH YUM OR SOMETHING, PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAASE TELL ME!***

I think I'll find more problems as life goes on in adapting to 64 bits, so any and all info I may need to know is appreciated.

I'm getting pretty ticked with this 64-bit business, but I don't want to give it up because of the RAM advantages and such...

I fixed assault cube with instructions for ubuntu on their site...
I got the libs for SL, one at a time, but the mozilla runtime environment has a segmentation fault- Dang!

Still have issues with flash 10. Please give me help!

For flash use the 64-bit version:
http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html

For 32-bit only programs you must have the 32-bit libs installed. I don't know how fedora handles this, but I compile my own and it works (usually).

Thanks, I had no idea that they had one of those...

But what do I do with the libflashplayer.so? I'm kinda used to the automatic installation of flash, sorry... this is probably a dumb question...
