AltMe on Linux 64bit

I post here a solution for a simple problem: Altme on Linux 64bit seems not working.


Firsto of all, do you know what is AltMe?
AltMe is a free chat software like IRC, but made only in pure Rebol; instead of rooms, there are worlds.
Rebol4 world is very populated of rebol users.
In order to use AltMe, just download it from:

then you must have a free account on it.
In order to have an account there are three ways:

Rebol gateway

This is the recommended method.
REBOL Gateway is an AltME world set up as a gateway to other REBOL resources.
  • Start the AltME client (that you just downloaded)
  • go to:
    • World: REBOL-gate
    • Username: guest
    • Password: guest
  • Post a message in the REBOL4 Join Requests group. We'll need your full name, preferred username, and a working email address (to send you a password)
  • Sit back and wait for a confirming email. To prevent spam, join requests are checked by real humans, so please be patient; it may take us a day or two to respond
  • If you are new to AltME: while you are waiting, please play with making posts in the playpen group. That'll give you a feel for how AltME works
  • Also, ask any questions in the Questions? group

Linux 64 bit problem

If you use Linux 64bit, you AltMe could give you this error:
./altme: error while loading shared libraries: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
solution is very easy: create a file in the same directory of altme with this content:

It's very important that the last line is the full path to the original altme binary.
Then make executable and launch it:

chmod u+x ./
