1 Hi,
3 the mainboard on my main workbox needs a replacement (currently still an
4 athlon-xp based system). So I will go amd64 with that machine. Booting
5 a 64bit kernel on all the 32bit binaries works fine. What gives me a bit
6 of a headache is how to switch?
8 Thought a: create a directory /64 install everything there and then switch
9 lib, bin /usr
11 Thought b: create tbz2 of all the packages and then in one run replace
12 the 32 packages using emerge but i might run into library problems.
14 Anybody has a good and efficient idea, how to do this?
16 Regards,
18 Konstantin
