Answering my own questions!
1. How to add 32 bit libraries (Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit):
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
2. Do rev standalones work then?
Yes, works like a charm.
If you are curious as to why I needed rev to work in 64-bit linux, I am
running a new MacBookPro as a triple boot (Mac OSX, Ubuntu Linux, WinXP)
machine and would like to develop and test all versions on the same
thanks for all the pointers in previous posts above -- they really helped!
