Subject: medm, dataviewer, dtt on 64 bit linux 
I compiled EPICS (base, medm and ezca) and dataviewer for 64 bit linux.
These are installed in /cvs/cds/caltech/apps/linux64/.
I also configured cshrc.40m to make it possible to run the 32bit dtt on 64bit machines.
64bit ligotools is also installed to /cvs/cds/caltech/apps/linux64/ligotools although I haven't tested it extensively.

With those essential tools available for 64bit linux, Joe and I decided to install 64bit CentOS to the new linux machine.
It is named allegra.
Now, medm, dataviewer, dtt, awg, foton and ezca commands all work on rosalba and allegra.
I put some notes on how to make things work on 64bit in the wiki.

I compiled dtt (actually the whole GDS tree) for 64bit linux and the build process finished normally.
But somehow dtt does not work properly. It starts on my laptop but does not retrieve data. It crashes on rosalba.
So I had to retreat to 32bit.
