Re: powerpc64 in testing install

Some time ago, install choices were changed:

install -> install32
install64 - > install

This means 64-bit kernel is now default

That's odd.

I do see this:


So that seems like a mistake.  Certainly installing powerpc arch on a
64bit ppc machine is very common.  I certainly see no reason to have a
64 bit compiled user space in general, but the 64 bit kernel makes lots
of sense.

Unless it simply doesn't ask and installs the right kernel anyhow.
