[REBOL] Re: Hacking 32-bit rebol for 64-bit ubuntu

From: gregg:pointillistic at: 25-May-2007 10:26

Hi Tim, TJ> Now for a bit of a rant: TJ> RT likes to advertise rebol's portability - RT: put your money where your TJ> mouth is and provide a build that is compatible with 64-bit ubuntu, 'cuz I TJ> suspect that there is going to be a lot of those distros being installed in TJ> the future. It seems that the portability is there, if you could hack the binary in a couple places to make it work. :) Also, even though I'll probably complain loudly when REBOL doesn't work on a platform I need it on, portability doesn't mean always available on every platform. That said, I think it would be good for RT to have someone on the inside that deals with issues like this, and charges a fee to build REBOL for a particular platform upon request. The service fee would vary, based on how much work needed to be done and the desired timeframe. In a case like this, your fee should be low because a) the fix is easy, and b) you did the work to find out what needed to be done. -- Gregg
