Maybe LMDE should revise their FAQ #5:

Q: Will it come in 64-bit? With KDE or other desktops?

A: That sounds a lot like aptosid

I have successfully put the Mint 9 tools (XFCE) on 64 bit aptosid (XFCE-64 bit). Unfortunately it pulls in some Ubuntu packages. I had hoped that Mint would have chosen something like aptosid to base it's Debian Edition on.

Per the Mint website the LMDE project it is only available in 32 bit. If you are using 64 bit, then you are using the original Mint project files that track Ubuntu. From what I've read LMDE uses debian sources.

Re: Debian rolling: tentative summary

      Quote:

- we acknowledged that some derivatives (e.g. aptosid) are doing the
work of stabilizing unstable. Isn't it a better way of doing things
in the sense that it doesn't harm testing a bit? IOW wouldn't it be
a better idea to somehow (with their consent) swallow a derivative
that seems to do what you want to instead of suffering NIH and
reinvent something a derivative does?


For those who are not followed the discussion, this is good read.

Yes, very interesting. Devil's threat of "assimilation" might be more true than he even knew! Laughing
