Most of the ports I've had problems with are desktop applications. Stuff that doesn't often get installed/used on 64 bit. It's been a while since we've tried (about 1 year) but Gnome was pretty unstable on 64 bit at the time. Can't say if this is universal across all 64 bit platforms. -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
