Or are you talking 64 vs. 32 bit? As I understand it, the performance advantage of kqemu over ordinary qemu, comes from running many of the instructions in the emulation directly on the host cpu. An amd64 compatible processor can't run 32-bit code in 64-bit mode and vice-versa, so it's either doing some emulation or switching back and forth between 32/64-bit modes. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
