amd64 - IA64


What is the difference between IA64 ans AMD64.

I have a fairly recent intel 64 bit processor. And looking for
debian package for mythtv I see that there are packages for both IA64 and AMD64. Which package should I use?

Any INFO appreciated

IA-64 is Itanium, and it wont work with x86-64 (AMD64) CPUs.

x86-64/AMD64 works just fine with intel x86-64 CPUs.

I really wish that intel hadnt been quite so silly with its naming on x86-64 compatible CPUs, they started off with "EM64T" then moved to "Intel 64", and I can see how that might get confused with Itanium/IA-64. I spose when intel made IA-64 the last thing they were expecting was AMD to roll out x86-64.
