I need this file to get Exaile installed: libpython2.5.so.1.0. But it's not in the repos, and the only site that carries it (PBone or something) never works. Anyone have it?
The regular flash file will still work in 64-bit. It's only the installer that doesn't like 64-bit. You can manually move the file to your Mozilla Firefox folder.
ATI just upped Linux driver support recently. It should be available in the package manager. I don't know about the no SATA support. A couple times, Suse didn't detect my SATA HDDs, but I rebooted and somehow now it does. Gobo Linux did that too, as well as PC-BSD.
It's just not a viable long-term OS.
