Hi Daniel

Thanks for the fb-devel link, unfortunately I haven't kept much in 
contact with it recently.  I remember Nickolays doing these 64bit 
changes, as Jim was concurrently doing his Vulcan 64bit changes.

I wasn't intending to do a 64bit build from souce but given your link, I 
might try it - but from previous experience, dont hold your breath, Im 
already 6mths behind on a lot of other things i'd like to try and do - 
but who knows :-).

On a happier note, I've did the 32bit version running on my amd64bit system.

In addition to the ia32 chroot setup


to get the 32bit libraries.

All I then needed to do was install the packages directly into the amd64 
bit space.

dpkg --force-all -i libfirebird2-classic_1.5.1-4_i386.deb
dpkg --force-all -i firebird2-server-common_1.5.1-4_i386.deb
dpkg --force-all -i firebird2-utils-classic_1.5.1-4_i386.deb
dpkg --force-all -i firebird2-classic-server_1.5.1-4_i386.deb
dpkg --force-all -i firebird2-examples_1.5.1-4_i386.deb

and so far (for last few hours of playing) it seems to be working fine.

Hmmm, now that makes things difficult, what do I do, do I keep my 
working 32bit install, or start playing with this :-).
