Ruby on pure 64-bit computer

I recently obtained a AMD x2 5200+ 64 bit cpu and motherboard. I have
installed
Debian’s AMD-64 port and plan to test my Ruby scripts on the new machine
soon.
Is there anything I need to be aware of when using Ruby in a pure 64 bit
environment? Any gotchas? I have not checked, but I assume Debian has
deb
(binary packages to install), if not I will build Ruby from Source…
perhaps
that’s prefered???

Thanks,
Brad

FWIW I’ve been running ruby on the amd64 port of FreeBSD for a few
months with absolutely no issues.

I use Ruby on Debian/AMD64. Debian has .deb packages of ruby, but you’ll
need to install a rather long list to get the whole standard library:
ruby, irb, rdoc, libdbm-ruby1.8, libgdbm-ruby1.8, libopenssl-ruby1.8,
libreadline-ruby1.8, libtcltk-ruby1.8, ruby1.8-dev, libruby1.8-extras,
rubygems
(Debian is in need of a nice metapackage for all of it, and we’re
getting
too close to the Etch freeze for comfort)

Ruby on AMD64 works just fine.
