Please don't ask those difficult questions to our TGHC!
You know those who, having been mugged and stabbed, fired, dog run over, house burned down, wife eloped with best friend, daughters becoming prostitutes and their countries invaded - still say that "all is well"?
I'm obviously not one of them.

In fact the question was just a broadcast that happened to be placed in my reply to TGHC.

If you're volunteering to be the maintainer for the amd64 build, hopefully once you have a working build environment, there shouldn't be an awful lot to do; mainly uploading it to BerliOS and making it available for rsync updates. (If you have a machine available that can do nightly builds, even better - it's quite easy to write a script that uploads the results to the rsync server, using ...umm... rsync, and optionally posts a build report to the web site). PM me if you want to do this and I can set you up with a login on the rsync server. Talk to Ahruman about the BerliOS stuff.

With newer hardware there may be some things you can do that I can't - for instance I don't own any hardware that does shaders, so I can't tell if these are working as an example.

Having just found ver. 1.65 in a Ubuntu repository I have been looking to see if there is a later version AMD64 around , I ended up here.

While I would love to help with getting some updates working I have several problems, not least of which is a weird proxy serve,r that is out of my control, that does not allow me to use ftp or svn. Also while I can d/l at sort of broadband speed via satellite my u/l is tragically via dialup and I am lucky to get 30k speed.

Having said that I am quite willing to test the builds on my AMD based 64 bit Kubuntu box if that is required, but not this week. I am going to be in the UK without much other than a laptop.
