Florian had some DNS troubles today. Anyway, we chatted in the
chatroom, and he asked me to put this info:

$ uname -a

x86_64 GNU/Linux

He found problems with crypto stuff:

I  proposed him to compile ejabberd from sources. But he likes to have
a working ejabberdctl. I proposed him to copy his new 64bit' *.so
files to the 32bit binary installed dir. He tried and failed with the
same error report. Maybe the files were not copied to the right dir.

I suggested him to try the Debian ejabberd package: it's 64bit real,
and has a nice ejabberdctl. He refused because Debian has only 1.1.2
packages, not the newer 1.1.3. So he thinks ejabberd package in Debian
is not maintained anymore, is completely dead and ejabberd 2.0.0 will
never be released in Debian.

I told him that Debian people didn't like ejabberd 1.1.3. That they
still used the version number "1.1.2", even if the code may be exactly
1.1.3. That maybe they didn't consider as problems how much
misconceptions and confusion that mismatched numbering could generate.
I told him that Debian people keep ejabberd perfectly updated, and I
finally convinced him to try ejabberd Debian package.

In a matter of minutes he got ejabberd running.

Anyway, there are 64bit Linux distros out there that do not have nice
ejabberd packages like Debian and other distros have. So, I think some
administrators will like a 64bit Linux binary installer.
