TC 64 Bit Anyone ?
« on: March 25, 2009, 08:33:31 PM »
I was just wondering if there were any plans or interest in a x86-64 version of Tiny Core ?
All my rigs are AMD 64 bit processors.

I believe that TC's focus is only on x86 at this time.

How about if it's a 64-bit Intel machine (that has multiple processors)?

If you are talking about compatibility, then yes - they are x86 compatible.

I'd be interested.  I just booted TC on a 64bit machine just fine.  However, it didn't recognize all my RAM.  I'd think TC would be all over 64bit since one of its great features is that of running fully within RAM.
If I can't see your mirrors, you can't see me.

I am interested running TinyCore linux as a server (part of a cluster)
I need 64 bit because I want to run mongo db database and 64bit is must for it.

@shimondoodkin: According to this announcement an alpha version of a 64-bit kernel and initrd for TC 3.x are available. There is also a thread which discusses the creation of a 64-bit ISO (and related questions).
