I'm new with BLAG. No problem with the i386 installation on both my desktop and laptop. No problem with the wifi (bcm43xx) on my laptop.
I install Acrobat reader (Sorry, I need it to update the website of comrad's paper. The paper come to me in pdf format and no one of the free pdf readers can work correctly with it) with no problem.
The only one I have is my laptop is AMD64 and I can't install the x86-64 BLAG. It run fine with i386, of course.
May be I'm stupid. The CD ISO I burned on a dvd (More than 700 Mb) boot but it ask me for the DVD image and say it's not in the dvd. The netinstall? I do have problems with the repositories.
Sorry, I'm French speaking from Guadeloupe (French W. Indies). I'm coming from Debian.

Sorry there isn't a x86_64 install image for 90k series. I suggest just using 32 bit for now.

I just run a new try with a netinstall and it's seems working. I found the repositories and now I'm stage: "Démarrage du processus d'installation. Veuillez patienter quelques minutes..."

I am an atheist, so I can't ask God to help me.

It took the night but this morning (Sept.8) it worked. It download a lot of things I don't use (May be a configuration when installing I missed).
So I have a BLAG (Current) x86_64 running fine on my laptop (AMD turion 64x2). Many thanks to you Jebba and the others. I think it's your work.

Yes, but I have to get the text and work with it in Bluefish or emacs. And it is not possible with evince because of the pdf they extract from a Quark Xpress file. When I want to select text it select text from the same line of different articles. It works with Inkscape but it's to much work because when I paste the selected text it delete the space between . , : ; and the next word. So I have a lot of "replace" to do. Thank's!
My laptop I install yesterday with BLAG x86_64 is 100% free.
