Re: Some questions and hardware offer
* Jan Houstek
| I suppose that it's possible to install 32bit Debian on an AMD64 hardware
| (with kernel borrowed e.g. from SUSE).
That's possible, yes.
| My question is if it is possible to install basic 64bit libraries
| from Debian-AMD64 project and run some applications in native 64bit
| mode, and if that is possibe, the next question is about a working
| build enviroment.
Yes, but I would recommend not doing this in a production
environment. Multiarch is not ready, and I would view running the
parts of it that are in place in a production environment as risky
business, at best.
| Next part of this message is the offer mentioned in the Subject.
| It would be possibe to reserve one dual Opteron 240 machine with 1GB of
| RAM for Debian-AMD64 project, if anyone is interested. The machine must
| physicaly be in our network and ownership (I cannot afford to donate $3000
| hardware). Using this machine would be conditioned with a visible progress
| of the Debian-AMD64 port.
I can't speak for others, but for my part, the project isn't moving
faster because of lack of time, not lack of hardware. So (again,
speaking for myself), thanks for the offer, but I already have access
to the hardware I need.
| P.S. Please excuse my bad English and feel free to correct any mistakes,
| I'm not a native speaker.
No problem, neither am I. :)
