Re: i686 to amd64

Ok, let's see what i have done.
I make a new partation /dev/sda6 with resierfs and mount it with /mnt/pure64
Then tried:
debootstrap --arch amd64 sid /mnt/pure64/ 


And it's started to download some files.
After passing some time, i am getting this error :(

I: Extracting zlib1g...
W: Failure trying to run: chroot /mnt/pure64 mount -t proc proc /proc

What should i do now, i am not enough expert, i never use this process .

The closest thing you can come to shifting is to create a new
partition, install (or cdebootstrap) a base system there without
selecting any extra packages, copy your /etc and debconf database,
dpkg --get-selections on the old system and dpkg --set-selections on
the new and then apt-get dselect-upgrade.
