Re: upgrade from x86 to amd64



Your best bet is to capture the pertinent files in /etc and /home from
32bit

of course, any databases etc. should also be preserved and log files
stored if they need to be held for legal reasons etc.

then copy them in to their new homes in a fresh 64bit install

ive moved my ~dean around from linux-i386 to linux-ppc to linux-x86_64

obviously anything binary doesnt work but its pretty much always 'just
worked'
