There is not such thing as i686 architecture. I assume you mean that you have an i686 processor, which is either i386 or amd64 architecture, depending on how the OS decides to use it. For a desktop system, you probably want to use i386. For a server, amd64 is probably better. -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com http://people.collaborativefusion.com/~wmoran/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
