[ncolug] Re: eBay pictures with Linux

Well, I'm curious as to the package name then:

picasa_3.0-current_amd64.deb

It sure seems to insinuate that it will work.

I don't have a box on which to try this... all my 64 bit machines are
loaded with a 32-bit Linux.  Anyone have a spare AMD-64 box sitting
around to try this?
