OK, I need to rant a little here.
#1
Thumbs Up 
The situation:

An AMD, dual-core machine running Ubuntu Jaunty with PulseAudio as-installed. No magic- I just use the packages and pick the defaults. I've not fiddled with source code, changed 'registry' settings or anything else.

The problem:

Earwax in the corners of my mouth. XBMC runs in 64-bit mode, almost effortlessly showing me the transparency of the control panel while I mess with it. I'm at something like 10% CPU. Good colors, excellent speed of all functions, I didn't believe playing videos (or for that matter, music) on my machine could be so luxurious and lush. I'm just about floored.

Moovida is working it's way here. They're a good bunch of guys, but you have the functionality now.

Boxee can't seem to squeeze out a Linux version more than once a year, and when they do it's 32-bit only. Maybe one day I'll fight to get it to work on Grandma's machine, but right now I'm in love.

There's nothing else even *pretending* to be a media center that's worth mentioning after this.

It's install had only one problem- a PulseAudio glitch that rendered it mute, but after making all settings "Autodetect" in the PulseAudio settings gui, I can even hear the little "click" noises as I navigate the beauty.

This, guys, is the embodiment of a great job, well-done. I even tried out a YouTube script. I didn't read anything, just dropped it into my .XBMC file tree and it worked on the first pull.

FRIGGIN' WOW! Have you guys been busy, or what?!?! Cool

Care to explain what you need 64-bit mode for?

What don't you need 64bit for, my breakfast doesn't taste the same with 32 bit Wink

Licking your lips will solve the issue... although I'm not partial to ear wax.

Yeah, I'm going to go ahead and shut down this three year old thread, in case there are people who don't notice the date of the original post.
