Subject: [gentoo-dev] Keyword amd64 -> x86_64
Date: Wed, 20 Feb 2008 17:59:14
1 Please excuse my ignorance if this is a naive comment or has been
2 brought up before. With all the non amd processors now with 64bit
3 support. amd64 as a keyword seems a bit odd and off maybe.
5 What's the possibility of switching amd64 to x86_64?
7 Unless the work to do that is greater than the value of the change.
9 I was thinking if portage could be updated to see both as the same arch.
10 Then we could transition ebuilds at their own pace. No massive changes
11 to tree.
13 Not sure how it would play with like
15 use amd64, if statements, etc
17 Anyway just a thought. Not one of any importance to me. So feel free to
18 bash the idea to hell :) Plz not me, I am doing a good job on my own of
19 writing my own ticket to hell ;)
