Installing x86_64 to 2.6.10 kernel


How do I "compile" (not sure if thats right word to use) the x86_64 files in the arch/x86_64 folder of the 2.6.10 kernel? Theres no image files, etc in there like the i386 folder.

If you set your processor family to "Opteron/Athlon64/Hammer/K8" in the "Processor Type and features" menu on make menuconfig then it should compile the kernel image in the x86_64 directory.

I was pretty sure I did that. Guess not. I'll give it another whirl tomorrow.

EDIT:
I just quickly looked in the make menuconfig command and it says cpu type is set to Opteron/Athlon64/Clawhammer and i'm running a Newcastle core Athlon 64. Any ideas? thanks.

Any other ideas why it wouldn't compile 64bit files?

same issue here. It will compile in arch/i386 but not arch/x86_64

Seems to be a not so common prob.
