I have put a repository request to remove blender from the x86_64 architcutre.

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 09:49:32 UTC
Blender 2.44, which supports 64bit, is available:

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