Re: autoconf stalls while checking "atomic builtins for 64 bit data types"

Possibly, installing the current Debian kernel from
unstable would resolve the problem.
No avail. Using the linux-image-4.12.0-2-parisc package, the behaviour
is quite the same. There is however not even a CONFIG_64BIT option in
/boot/config-4.12.0-2-parisc. In vanilla kernel, this option becomes
visible only once the "Processor Type" is changed away from the value
"PA7000/PA7100" (CONFIG_PA700) Debian uses, to "PA8000 and up"
(CONFIG_PA8X00) - a setting that worked fine for me in the past years.
uses 64-bit kernels.
linux-image-4.12.0-2-parisc is a 32-bit kernel. 64-bit kernels are
named like linux-image*parisc64.
You need to select CONFIG_PA8X00 and CONFIG_64BIT to get a 64-bit
kernel. The old
"PA7000/PA7100" machines are 32-bit only. Certain PA8000 machines only
kernels due to their firmware. The c3600 firmware supports both.
