Subject: Upgrade and change distro?
I have a dual core Intel server running 6.1 RELEASE i386. I want to
update it to 7.0 RELEASE. Can I also switch to the AMD release at the
same time? (It's my understanding that all dual core processors should
be running AMD not i386.)
If so, do I simply point to the GENERIC kernconf under AMD? Any
AMD64 is for 64-bit chips from AMD and Intel. whether it is multi-core
is beside. run i386 still if you want/need 32-bit operating system.
there are some features and programs that will NOT work with AMD64.
Thanks, Sean. Maybe I'll understand FreeBSD some day. :-)
Will I need to rebuild all my ports after compiling the kernel and world?
If it isn't already obvious,
my opinions are my own and not
those of my employer.
