Has anybody else actually tried it themselves on a 64-bit Live-DVD or Live-USB instead of surmising what might or might not happen? The only error message is what I posted, the system logs do not record anything about the error.

Can't try now, I'm at work, can you try with full path not with ./ shortcut:

for example
Quote:
/home/demo/Downloads/minstall


instead of
Quote:
./minstall

I don't think it's 64 bit problem, if you try to run a 32 bit binary it tells you that it cannot find the 32 bit libraries for it (if you don't have them installed on your system) not that the file is not there, it's something else going on I think.


Um, I dunno then :confused:

I'm on a timescale for getting it to warren and going away for Xmas on Thursday. I'm afraid I may not get a 64bit out :sad: However, it might be in the next release... :crossfingers:

Does Warren have a 64 bit compiled minstall or simply runs the 32 bit one? It should probably work...

Pretty sure Warren can modify it as he needs without much trouble

There are both 32bit and 64bit mepis-install packages: ftp://ftp.mepis.com/mepis/pool/main/m/mepis-install/ so there is probably a difference between the two.

I downloaded and extracted both of the Mepis 8.5 packages with ark, the md5sum of the 64bit /usr/sbin/minstall executable differs from that of the 32bit version:

Quote:
kent@mepis1:/tmp$ md5sum /tmp/mepis-install_8.5.00_amd64/usr/sbin/minstall
[highlight="chartreuse"]e3c4be5a3d8b6e70cf74fef5eb0c1b32[/highlight] /tmp/mepis-install_8.5.00_amd64/usr/sbin/minstall
kent@mepis1:/tmp$
kent@mepis1:/tmp$ md5sum /tmp/mepis-install_8.5.00_i386/usr/sbin/minstall
[highlight="chartreuse"]90f0a70b315d35fd69a547653bfdb542[/highlight] /tmp/mepis-install_8.5.00_i386/usr/sbin/minstall

Did that before I posted, got the same result, but didn't specifically state that I had tried the full path option.

beats me... usually if you chmod +x and specify the path it should at least find the file even if for some reasons cannot run it. Maybe it has to do with the file system I remember somebody having problems running a program from a FAT32 partition.

Don't think that's it. I ran it directly from my FAT formatted usb stick.

Annoyingly, I can't get my 32bit Vbox to run the 64bit ISO even though the docs say it should work... :angry:

It depends on you CPU... I think it needs to support VT-x or AMD-V
