XnView on 64-bit Linux (AMD64), howto?

Post by plg » Thu Feb 16, 2006 12:21 pm

Is there an howto for installing XnView on 64-bit Linux somewhere?
Will XnView be ported, supported on 64-bit Linux in the near future?

thanks / Patric

Unzip and run:

Code: Select all

wget http://download.xnview.com/XnView-x86-unknown-linux2.x-static-fc4.tgz
tar xfvz XnView-x86-unknown-linux2.x-static-fc4.tgz
cd XnView-1.70-x86-unknown-linux2.x-static-fc4/bin
./xnview

It doesn't need to be ported because AMD designed the hardware so that it's not necessary.

Use IA64 instead of x86_64 if you want a system that cannot execute x86 binaries.

Try installing the windows .exe version with wine. It's working perfectly on my x86_64 suse 10.1. Easier than building an amd box for sure.
