First post here. I'm usually on gentoo user. I'm in the process of
building a new system which will be 64 bit. I am looking for advice. I
would like people to post things that I might run into that one wouldn't
expect and some things that are different from x86. I was looking at
something on my old rig and noticed the USE flag smp. I didn't know
about that until I ran up on it. I learned something by pure dumb luck.
I'm a long time Gentoo user. Installed it at the early stages of 1.4.
I also use KDE and have fluxbox installed as a backup. The processor is
a AMD Phenom II X4 955 @3.2Ghz. It will start out with one 4Gb stick of
ram. I plan to expand that later.
What are some things that I should watch for and enable that isn't so
obvious for someone new to 64 bit?
