opera 9.64 on gentoo x86_64, libqt-mt.so.3 and other issues

Finally I've managed to set this up.
Putting my experience here, hoping it will help someone and would be on top of google results.

There are reasons for me to keep 9.64 instead of using 10.x versions. The one reason is that opera 9.64 is somehow more secure, since, most users usually upgrade to newer version (since opera is not windows/linux-bundled) and newer versions look nicely. I don't need new functionality that is bundled with 10.x tree, the other reason for why I'm...

OMFG What a NOOB am I!!!
Today I've occasionally discovered what does 'lm' flag from /proc/cpuinfo mean... I've been using my AMD Sempron 3000+ cpu for already 4 years and had no clue it can handle 64-bit! ahahahah omfg I'm such a noob...

from 32-bit OS to 64-bit OS

Posted 06-19-2010 at 08:57 AM by ionraedt

I am working with Ubuntu for quite a while (now 10.4 / 32bit).
As I have a 64-bit processor, I'd like to try a 64 OS.

You find enough meanings on the net about "why" and "why not" to change over to an 64-bit OS.
However, you don't find a lot about HOW to do it preserving as much as applications, settings and data from the old 32-bit system.
In short, what is the best way to upgrade your OS to 64-bit ??

Any comments are welcome...
