What are the chances of getting an ia32e specific kernel in the x86_64
version of Fedora Core 3? We're starting to ship Nacona based systems,
and we have always done Fedora Core pre-installs. While the x86_64
kernel of FC2 works now, I thought it was in some sort of 'compatible
64bit' mode rather than ia32e or em64t specific mode.
I guess a better question: With kernel 2.6, is there any need to have a
specific ia32e vs amd64 kernel? Are all the differences worked out at
runtime and thus a non-issue?
it's all runtime. The extra amd64 instructions are patched in at runtime
