From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070313 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
Blender is not yet ready to be used in 64bit format. The files are not saved correctly and the are other issues. I suggest removing it from the repository and giving the option to install the 32 bit version.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install the x86_64 rpm
2. run the binary
3. save the file

Actual Results:
this package just shouldn't be available

Expected Results:
a 32bit package should be installed

I have put a repository request to remove blender from the x86_64 architcutre.
Comment 3 Shaul Kedem 2007-04-22 15:57:32 EDT
It should be said that the next version of blender (may be called 2.43a, 2.44 or
2.5..) is planned to support 64bit, and it should be very near; however, I'm
sure that when it will happen ton will remove the warning from the source code
(version 2.43 cannot be compiled in 64bit without getting a message saying the
software is not production capable and exit(); )
Comment 4 Shaul Kedem 2007-05-14 05:49:32 EDT
Blender 2.44, which supports 64bit, is available:

Please pay extra attention to what python version this supports and what FC
