64-bit environment needed to debug Tango for GDC?

Hi all,

I'm noticing that bug fixes for Tango under 64-bit GDC seem to be lingering. I'm not good enough yet with D to do the debugging, but I do have a dev machine available to clear up those bugs if any current developer is interested (and I can do the groundwork, such as re-creating bug reports).

Heya Duke, the observation is fairly correct, mostly because there yet has to be a stable GDC release that actually is capable of producing a fully functional Tango on that platform (and others non-x86). We truly hope that the next release of GDC will help us at least get further, but that is not something we know yet.

Well, heck ... I guess I'll just have to work on the fundamentals while GDC catches up. Thanks for the quick answer!

I'm on 64 bit linux and have built tango and several of the applications I'm developing with no problems... I'm using the latest SVN of GDC though.

Sure debio, but it has been 18 months since the previous posts in this thread :) Also, there has _still_ not been an actual release, SVN trunk is the only currently usable alternative of GDC.
