Yes. I'm on x64. I didn't see a 32 bit blender build.
If I followed that right, the "-" is used for 64 bit, and not for 32 bit?
I think I may have misunderstood "full-sync." When I read that, my mind went to sync'ing a "full" repo and downloading an entire tree. It didn't dawn on me that it could just be a little meet-n-greet-pow-wow of all the packages so they get to know one another and see who is doing what and where? Is that close? This whole pkgman/depot is still a new beast to me.
I think I may have to try each method and think about doing a tutorial write up. I know there's gotta be a bunch of Blender heads out there gnashing at the bit for something different than the usual Mac/Win/Lin suspects.
