  1. Indeed it does not work on Debian 7 due to old libs. It does however work on recent versions of just about any other distro. Even the latest RHEL.

  2. On an Intel 64 bit processor the Ubunto Software Center throws a “Wrong architecture ‘amd64’ error”.

    How does one get around that problem?

    • Your cpu maybe 64bit capable but your installed os might be 32bit hence the “Wrong architecture”.
      To check your OS architecture fire up a terminal and type “uname -i” without the quotes.
      The result for 64bit OS is x86_64.

  3. Thanks for the post :)

    BTW: your English is pretty good :)
