You're welcome :)

Qtractor can be build with VST support on Debian (based distros) without 
any issues, but you might miss some features supported by Ardour. Some 
32-bit apps are fine if you add a so called '32-bit chroot' or if you 
add 32-bit libs by the 'getlibs' command. For Suse it's easier to use 
32-bit apps. On Suse 32-bit apps are ok, that don't run on Debian 64-bit 
installs, e.g. proprietary LightScribe software.

Do you know dssi-vst? http://www.breakfastquay.com/dssi-vst/
