Newbie: Slackware 64bit AMD support (x86-64)?
I'm new to this forum & to Slackware. I was wondering, does Slackware fully support AMDs x86-64 extensions, ie. is there a Slackware port/version that runs natively 64 bit? Or is this planned for Slackware 11?

Just by browsings Slacks webpages I couldn't tell for sure, but it appeared not to exist yet...

TIA, Jesper Mortensen

Kernel 2.6.x has support for the AMD 64 chip and ver 10 does include the option of installing kernel 2.6.7.

Not much info I know - hope it helps answer your question. -tw
