I'm curious about gutsy low-latency kernel, the 64bit packet version is 
not available in repositories, they only give the headers.

Does it mean that we should wait for those patches to see a difference 
between pd-32bit and pd-64bit?

Same here, if you look for some particular 64bit externals that doesn't 
compile, I use to put some successfully compiled ones in here:


I don't know if it's a good idea to share externals like this because 
there is already pd-extended, But I like the idea of being able to 
install a single external with wget or something like that.

Yes I,
