amd64 and i386 are different platforms in the same sense that sparc64 and ppc are different platforms. An AMD 64 is not back-compatible to pentium pro code when it's in 64-bit mode. Whilst 32-bit binaries can be run on the amd64 platform, they need special handling, you can't just mix-and-match world and kernel platforms. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
