Thank you Adrian :)

this is very kind, but at the moment I need to take a deep breath and 
then I'll continue some other things I've got to do.

Soon I might change to 64 Studio on x86 architecture, because it's 
always the same when using x86_64 architecture.

Btw. I guess I got a link to your patch:

Hi [snip] :)

thank you very much, but I won't spend time because of this 32-bit vs 
64-bit issue again and again. Has anybody tried to compile it for Suse 
on 64-bit? 32-bit architecture LightScribe stuff that isn't fine for 
Debian and Ubuntu on 64-bit, is fine for Suse on 64-bit. This is really 
a PITA, I'm thinking of reinstalling my Linux on 32-bit architecture, 
but I'm pissed that there seems to be the need to do that. I guess once 
a quarter year I've got trouble because I installed my Linux on 64-bit, 
but 32-bit. I kept Suse 64-bit and Windows 32-bit installations because 
of this issue, instead of removing this installations.

The link you gave me is linking to http://www.gidforums.com/t-18824.html 
and there somebody posted: "Actually, in my opinion, the best bet would 
be to use a 32-bit Linux distribution rather than a 64-bit one"

I'm deeply impressed by Animata. Today I heard the first time of it on 
the Linux audio dev list, btw. I'm not a developer for Linux, but simply 
a user. This is what I've written to the Linux audio dev list: "I've got 
a long todo list and actually no time to test Animata, but I'm very 
curios to give it a chance. Maybe I'll upset plans ;)." And I did upset 
plans, but I'm to short in time to expend effort all the time, because 
the world still is on 32-bit architecture. This is the architecture of 

Again, thank you very much. I guess I'll take a look on Animata using 
Windows and soon change from 64 Studio Linux x86_64 back to x86.

A note to the Artists who made the "Reverse Shadow Theatre" and "Animata 
Jazz Pub" on http://animata.kibu.hu/. This is very beautiful artwork, I 
enjoyed watching it a lot.
