This is nucking futs:
gene@coyote:~/bin/firefox-37/firefox$ file firefox
firefox: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically 
linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.18, 
BuildID[sha1]=0xd9c52e07232a78690be6d991546a12bb3668601d, stripped

For GNU Linux-2.6.18? And I'm running 3.2.0-4amd64? Itself what, 2 years 
old? What the hell are the chances for that being compatible when its 
well north of 6 years old?  My CNC machinery is running Ubuntu-10.04-4 
LTS with kernel 2.6.32-122-rtai, 5 years old this month.

This could drive me to drink, except I'm a DM-II and that means one a day 
max if I want to keep my feet for a while yet...
