Thanks. I tried the 64bit architecture and it did not recognize my NIC, or the graphic drivers. When I look at the installed devices, I see a lot of "unknowns". I am downloading the x86 version now, hopefully I can get the internet and graphics working in the x86 version.

I think Paparazzi has never been compiled on a 64 bit architecture so it
would be better to go for the standard 32 bit installation.
I'm not sure we would have time to produce the required 64 bit packages
for the dependencies (ivy, ivy-ocaml, gcc-arm, ...)
So please use the x86 version.

The nVidia graphics cards are usually well supported by the proprietary
nvidia driver (available in Debian or Ubuntu).
