README for bi-architecture 64 bit platforms users

Current version of GTK+ has a problem running 32 and 64 version on
single machine. See http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=129540 and
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=153848 for more information.

To work around this problem, 64 bit version for SUSE Linux uses special
names for following files:

/usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0:    /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0-64
/etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules:          /usr/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules64

And following variable:

$GTK_PATH:                                 $GTK_PATH64

This can cause problems during self-compilation of packages.

To work-around these problems (introduced by this work-around), you


- Make a patch of package (please do not send it to package
developers, it's temporary solution).


- Install 32 bit version of GTK+.

These problems should be correctly solved in GTK+ sometimes in future.
