Re: Debian for AMD64
Been running Sarge for a year on a genuine AMD Opteron. Have Debian
unstable on several Opterons, a dual Xeon and Pentium D. The Pentium D
"feels" faster but may have a faster clock speed / dynamically faster
memory / peripherals. Not been running these for very long at all - but
no obvious problems.
AMD64 - no problem :) The caveat is what level of package churn you can
tolerate - unstable moves very quickly, testing less so, stable hardly
at all. Pick one and stick with it :)
Thanks for the info! That leads me to my next question...
Have most packages been ported to the amd64 architecture, or is there a
limited selection? I found the amd64 "testing" version here:
But I wasn't sure if most packages had been ported to use the 64-bit OS.
Any problems there?
