good to know !
the fact that some libs don't work is (I think) not a big problem for me...

yes, and also it would be very good if pd-extended was avalaible in 
x86_64 platforms

thanks to this script :
I have now pd-0.42.5-extended and a lot of libs running on x86_64 ! nice :)

Ok If i see that 0.42.5 is not stable enought to do a live show I'll 
return to 0.41
But for now I'll continue testing my patches with 0.42.5

thx all, for your work !

What is the best method to reports bugs/crashes etc etc ?
this list ?
irc #dataflow ?
