I do have AMD64, please tell me how it performs, issues. bugs -

Since I consider my self still a Newbie, I'm kinda worried I would experiance a lot of hangs, crashes and instability with this build - so I'm trying to find reason to run it.

Feel free to provide reason to run it :)

is there a public mailing list for amd64 Fedora users so we can address 64bit fedora issues directly to this type of community?

Not an Fedora-specific one. There's a general amd64-list one though found here:

Ahh, good 'ole parents ;)

Well I haven't gotten it working yet but I can tell you the test 1 x86_64 version worked almost flawlessly and so it should be even better now with all the updates. It was also very snappy, I could tell that everything responded faster and loaded quicker (maybe it was my imagination but I know what I think I FELT!) :p I will hopefully writeup a full review when I get the time (come on sweet spring break). :cool:

Yes, I believe when Core 2 comes out it will be leaps and bounds better in terms of being on the same standing as regular i386 architechture (oh boy oh boy I can't wait!)

I hope this amd64 os stuff works out well, I'm really not impressed with all the linux vendors makin us pay for the cds. and not providing us with at least an unsupported version.

I guess that's why I went with fedora.

A) it's supported like any os, user/developer support

B) wicked easy to get iso's

C) I like typing stuff in this format.

D) it works great :)

Typical yank. :p

Well here in the UK we don't have extremes. Just miserable weather. It rains and it rains a lot, funnily enough its raining now!

This has gone dangerously off-topic. Any future off-topic posts will be split to General Discussion. Sorry to be a kill joy.
