pitfal: not using Pd-0.41
advice: use pd-0.41
note: there is still no Pd-extended for 0.41; if you are using 
Pd-extended, you might be better off not using a  64bit linux for the 
time being.

tip of the day: if you running a dual-boot with /home used in both 32bit 
and 64bit environments, it often helps if externals have the suffix 
.l_i386 and .l_ia64; the old .pd_linux suffix might sometimes create 
confusion, when libraries refuse to load.

ot-tip of yesterday: i found a dual-boot environment with a moving 
target (debian sid/lenny) unmaintainable; while i still have the 32bit 
system eating up a third of my harddisk, i haven't used it for years (as 
a matter of fact, the last time i tried was at the lac2007, and i 
miserably failed)

apart from that, i am very happy.

finally{}: i assumed that you want to use a 64bit operating system; of 
course you can also run your athlon64 in 32bit mode...
