Their is no 64bit version of Steam, all the versions come from the Ubuntu builds or tar files all of which are 32bit. The 64bit package might have had the required information to pull the proper 32bit libs. Who knows, I just know that steam is 32bit only.

Correct, the rpm installs the 32-bit dependencies and then the Debian client

Ahh. Well that's exactly what the Arch multi-libs repo does so that would be why I only saw a 32bit version.

I'm not against their stance of charging for the distro but I am against their stance of arrogance in that Bodhi is free and run by donations and yet Bodhi...unlike Elive, is on the most up to date releases of E17 and most packages out of the box.

Wait it costs? Disappointing. Someone should put together a free one
post #4908 of 7733

It's free to use as a live CD but you have to pay if you want to install it to your hard drive.

post #4909 of 7733
Looks like scamware to me. They argue that it costs developer time, but it's just Debian with some custom (and pretty ugly too) themes. I could knock out an Elive clone in a weekend.

While I'm not against distros selling their product, they've usually got some substance to them (eg RHEL has it's clustering and virtualisation tools). This strikes me as a teenager trying to pay his way through uni by reselling free software. Even the website is half arsed and likely cobbled together in a couple of hours (so many grammar errors, bad formatting (center justifying body text just stinks of amateurism) and even outdated code - eg websnapr). And even if those guys did develop original code for that Elive, then I really wouldn't trust it given how woeful their website it.

While on the subject of the website, this bit made me lol: "Elive is a complete operating system for your computer. "
"Complete" is the the bare minimum any operating system needs to be. Honestly, if that's all they can come up with for the opening sentence when describing their distro, then their product offers nothing.

This has actually quite annoyed me - and not because they're charging people to use free software (if people are dumb enough to do that, then that's their prerogative) - it's because the idiot behind Elive has done such a crappy job on his pet project.

I agree.
