I didn't hear anything on the lists about amd64 recently... you could always ask on users@ though smile

Re: amd64

DFly runs fine on Athlon64/Opteron hardware -- as a 32-bit OS.

Matt has mentioned many many times on the lists that he will not even consider porting DFly to 64-bit until all the underlying architecture and plumbing is working and complete on 32-bit hardware.  That won't be for another year or thereabouts.  Once the plumbing is done and working, then it should be fairly easy to move it over to AMD64.  Trying to do the port and re-architecting everything at the same time would not be a lot of fun to manage.  smile

Well he actually considered doing the port but that was before 1.0 smile
