I just wanted to put up a friendly post here thanking everyone who put their
two-cents in, when I asked about Linux distributions some time ago.  Thanks to
events, mostly beyond my control, I am now rebuilding two of my development
machines at home using Debian as their operating system.

(Details: http://www.dsource.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=8581)

It hasn't taken very long at all to adjust, and I already have the DMD toolchain
running on my laptop (thanks Walter).  I'll post again after I try getting the
AMD64 version to run on my desktop, as I'm eager to see if there are any issues
with DMD and/or GDC in that environment.

I'm so sorry I missed the last one. You can count on me stopping by for the next one, as I'm sure to have gobs of questions for you guys. In the meantime, the mailing list will have to do. Heck, do you want me to drop in any other time? I recall that you planned on presenting Walter's SDWest paper... am I too late? - EricAnderton at yahoo

You are not too late. I may or may not be doing it later this semester. You're welcome at any meeting. Same goes for everyone else, should you be in the Washington, DC area. We are having an interesting meeting next week: emacs vs vi(m) vs kate -- debate style flame war. http://umlug.umd.edu/ for more information. ~John Demme

I've got a AMD64 for one month now, and beside the fact, that DMD/GDC have no 64 Bit support yet (something I hope we have soon) there are no real problems. The only thing you need are all system libraries installed in an additional 32 Bit version, e.g. in /usr/lib32 or /usr/local/lib32. You can't use DMD for linkage then though, but must use "gcc -m32" or an eventually installed gcc32 alias for this. I'm currently developing a realtime stratic game engine with such an configuration (after I got OpenGL, SDL, OpenAL and cairo bindings from dsource working, cairo4d required a few changes for Linux support) and had no major problems yet (except the lack of D support in kdevelop and gdc ;-)) Greetings Wolfgang Draxinger

Try Codeblocks svn (www.codeblocks.org) + my patch: https://developer.berlios.de/patch/?func=detailpatch&patch_id=956&group_id=5358 which enables dmd and gdc under linux. Codeblocks has a quite good D support. BR Marcin Kuszczak (Aarti_pl)
