If you are still using the default kernel, i. e. did not recompile
your own and threw out ‘unneeded’ options/modules, everything will be
>(or will I need to reinstall things? Both processors are intel 64 bits,
If you have not installed amd64 but rather i386 initially, it might
still be a good idea to reinstall using amd64, hence making use of
the enlarged address space and some possible other optimisations.
Of course, you will have to make sure that the hardware is
compatible, i. e. the Core2 Quad fits into your Socket 775, but I
assume you already checked that :)
