x86_64 and the x86 masked package (sounds like a ballad)

Post by copin123 » Tue Oct 23, 2007 13:51

I have been trying to emerge this bit of code for quite some time, to no avail.

here's the story:
my school uses leap wireless (cisco based). so I have searched the internet looking for ways of doing this.

so far, the only solution that I have found is to install cisco-aironet-client-utils(net/misc)

I have an x86_64 system and it only comes in x86. how can I get this to install?
btw, I am having the same issue installing eclipse (java programming suite)

thanks to any who reply!

x86_64 has a few driver issues, you should either contact cisco about a 64bit package, or switch to 32bit.
