REBOL 2 on 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04

I have downloaded REBOL 2 on a test computer with 64-bit Ubuntu, and as expected, it doesn't work, probably of the 64-bitness. I am wondering if anyone has done this and if/how they made it work.    
I am aware that there is a 64-bit CORE available, but I am interested in VIEW so I can make GUI's.
Thank you.

See https://stackoverflow.com/q/39420321/76852 for 64 bit Arch Linux.
Or, try atronix engineering 64 bit view for Linux though that's rebol3. See http://rebol.atronixengineering.com/r3/downloads/r3-64-view-linux-dev

Well, well, there's enough to keep a guy busy for a while. I have not been keeping up on the state of REBOL 3. I downloaded the Windows and Linux versions and have them running on Windows, Opensuse Leap 42.2, and Ubuntu 16.04. Download, run, no fussing. That's the promise of REBOL and it works. I will have to see how my R2 stuff runs on R3.

I believe these are 64 bit versions are 32 bit with dependancies. Was this your source? http://www.maxvessi.net/rebsite/Linux/
