I'm just about to enter the AMD64 universe with a new dual-processor
system. As a long-time Debian user, I'd like to make certain I've made
sense of several issues.
As I understand it, pure64 is will be (when finished) a 100% 64-bit
installation of Debian sid, and that about two-thirds of the packages
have been compiled for AMD64 at this point.
Also, I gather that the standard installation procedure involves:
1) Installing a 32-bit Debian distro
2) Compiling a custom and installing a 64-bit kernel
3) Installing pure64 on a secondary path
4) Chrooting to the pure64 path when wanting to run 64-bit apps
The above design keeps the 64-bit libraries from tripping over their
Am I correct? And if not, can someone here clarify?
