openssl? pure 64-bit kernel?
Wow, great work! From the earlier discussions I had expected Debian to
take months to port to AMD64. This is a great surprise and makes a lot
I chrooted from a SuSE 9 installation, following the instructions, and
got the current packages installed (the ones I want); this was smooth
Is there an updated openssl package to fix the ssh problem? It hangs on
defining RSA keys, as someone on the list pointed out, along with the
I'm also waiting for wajig, a set of perl scripts that simplifies
package management. And transcode -- the various modules from a range of
projects apparently need quite a bit of work to take advantage of the
multimedia capabilities of this CPU.
What's the story with the kernel? Why worry about 32-bit compatibility
at all at this point? I'd like to build my own kernel; should I do it in
SuSE instead of the the Debian chroot? Why?
All right, I'm clueless; I'm looking for a simple answer, namely this
one: "Just compile the kernel on your pure AMD64 Debian chroot; it will
run there. If you ever need 32-bit compatibility, you make another
kernel -- worry about it then."
