Been busy and away from SL but I'm sort of back with SL on 64 bit Fedora

Yes, been busy and working and my schedule has reduced SL time. But I got myself a cheap refurb x86 box so I have more access to SL when the laptop is occupied. I'm dual-booting it between Linux (my usual OS that I ran on my PS3) and Windows. I used to use my PS3 for everything except SL, until Sony decided to take away the ability to run Linux with a recent firmware. Without that firmware you don't have access to PSN so it was either run Linux and forgo network play and PSN or update and use Linux. So that's why the x86 box.

I have SL installed in both operating systems...was a bit of a hassle to get it working in Linux (due to 64 bit issues) but it works fine now, even with sound, and voice. Just mess with the secondlife script that starts it to make sure gstreamer doesn't get disabled

#if [ "`uname -m`" = "x86_64" ]; then
# echo '64-bit Linux detected: Disabling GStreamer (streaming video and music) by default; edit ./secondlife to re-enable.'

Don't create that SLVoice script some say to do. Just get all those i686 libs you need.

I'm also in counseling working on getting the "hormone letter".
