Arch-based extension dir (tce/optional32 + tce/optional64)
« on: July 05, 2015, 07:10:24 AM »
I am flipping back and forth between architectures quite a bit (i686 and x86_64), so I keep both 32-bit and 64-bit extensions in my tce folder. I have optional32 & optional64, then link one to tce/optional. I was swapping manually, but now I've patched tce-setup to let it update the tce/optional link at boot time based upon the kernel architecture.

If you're going to use this, you'll need to unpack/patch/repack both the 32-bit and 64-bit core.gz. One patch for tce-setup in both architectures.

..or you could create two boot entries, one with tce=tce32 and one with tce=tce64?

Bwhahaha! Dammit. I've been using tcz= for years now - it doesn't support the directory change.

Yep, tce=sda1/tce32 and tce=sda1/tce64 work fine. Thanks, Juanito.
