I installed the 64-bit system anticipating a future memory upgrade from the current 4GB to 8GB. However, VNC is essential for various members of my group, as is ports/devel/root (which doesn't compile on amd64) and there is some of our own (also essential) custom software which is not 64-bit clean. Since this holds up a number of people from their work and my patching skills are VERY meager, I will have to roll back to the 32-bit OS. Thanks again! Greg P.S. Yes, I should have tested more before the upgrade. I did some tests, but obviously not enough! In my defence, I was hastened by the disk dying and the need to get the machine back up and running. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
